New Delhi: It turned out to be a day of fielding brilliance in the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Saturday with the Mumbai Indians-Delhi Daredevils witnessing brilliant efforts from the players.
Earlier in the Mumbai innings, opener Jos Buttler became a victim of brilliant Sanju Samson fielding. The Englishman got run-out as flying Samson's underarm throw hit the stumps.
Mumbai returned the favour, with Hardik Pandya, sending back Aditya Tare in similar fashion. Opening the innings with Samson, Tare wanted to take a single in the fourth ball of the first over, bowled by Mitchell Johnson.
Tare played towards cover and set off for a quick single, there an alert Pandya picked the ball and ran towards the bowling end. He completed the rite with an underarm throw from zero angle, even as a diving Tare desperately tried to reach home. But to no avail.
Here's the video:
Thanks to good bowling and concerted fielding efforts, Mumbai Indians defended a small total of 142 to register their sixth win in last seven matches.
