New Delhi: The Mumbai Indians (MI) skipper Rohit Sharma took a brilliant one-handed catch to dismiss dangerous AB de Villiers in their Indian Premier League (IPL) match against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Friday.

With RCB captain Virat Kohli going strong at one end, the visitors at Bangulur's Chinnaswamy Stadium needed quick wickets to halt the home team's charge. And de Villiers was probably the biggest threat they have. Known as the Mr.360 in cricket for veritable stroke making prowess, the South African batsman can destroy any attack in the world.

But today, he was undone by a brilliant catch by Rohit Sharma.

It happened in the 17th over of the RCB innings, with Krunal Pandya bowling. De Villiers tried to go over cover, but Rohit was manning the area. And he took a giant leap, and stretched out his left to complete the catch mid-air.

Here's the VIDEO:
