Watch: LSG’s Ravi Bishnoi’s Gravity-Defying Catch to Out Williamson in IPL 2024

Ravi Bishnoi’s Gravity-Defying Catch: In a display of agility and brilliance, Lucknow Super Giants’ spinner Ravi Bishnoi took what could arguably be the catch of the IPL 2024 season during the game against Gujarat Titans at the Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow. The catch, which led to the dismissal of the formidable Kane Williamson, came at a crucial juncture in the match held on Sunday, April 8, and has since been hailed as a moment of pure cricketing excellence.

Defending a total of 163, Lucknow Super Giants were in a tight spot as the Titans, with only one wicket down, seemed to be pacing their chase comfortably at the end of the powerplay. Yash Thakur had earlier provided LSG with a breakthrough by dismissing Shubman Gill, but the Titans were still positioned strongly with Gill and Sai Sudharsan making a promising start.

In the 8th over, bowled by Bishnoi himself, Williamson attempted to drive a fuller delivery. However, the shot was mistimed, sending the ball back towards the bowler. With little time to react, Bishnoi launched into the air, extending his right hand in a moment that seemed to suspend time and secured the catch, subsequently falling to the ground but holding onto the ball. This effort not only showcased Bishnoi’s reflexes and athleticism but also marked a turning point in the match, significantly hampering the Titans’ momentum.

Williamson’s wicket became the start of a downward spiral for the Titans, who struggled to build partnerships or maintain a steady run rate thereafter. Bishnoi, who only bowled two overs in the match, finished with impressive figures of 1/8, but it was his extraordinary catch that stole the limelight, etching the moment in the memories of cricket fanbase & players alike.
