New Delhi: Suresh Raina is considered as one of the finest fielders India has ever produced. The Gujarat Lions skipper proved the world just why he has such reputation after pulling off a stunning catch in the match against Rising Pune Supergiant, dismissing Ajinkya Rahane.

The catch not just helped GL dismiss danger-man Rahane and thwart RPS' chances of scoring a big total but also drew praise from one of the greatest fielders ever, Jonty Rhodes.

"Oh stop it @ImRaina ! Love watching this man in the field! Now that @mipaltan have stressed us coaches out; time to sit back n enjoy," the South African tweeted.

"#GLvRPS #IPL2017 who says that there is too much cricket; and players & fans are jaded #awesomecricket," Jonty's second tweet read.

Standing at slip, Raina appeared to be in no position to take the catch as the ball seemed through the gap between him and the wicket-keeper.

Off-balanced and heading in the wrong direction, Raina took out his left hand hoping to reach the ball somehow before it got stuck in his hand.

The result, was phenomenal, as everyone in the stadium and indeed those watching the match on television sets couldn't believe what they had witnessed.
