Catching has been of high clash in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The standards have gone up with each game. Rajasthan Royals cricketer Jofra Archer took things one step ahead when he left everyone shocked with his stunning acrobatic catch.
Opting to bat first, Mumbai Indians didn’t get off to a flying start. They lost in-form Quinton de Kock courtesy Jofra Archer in the first over to reel at one for seven. But Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav steadied the innings with a timely partnership. Although Ishan looked out of socks but kept the scoreboard ticking.
The right hand-left hand combination added 83 runs for the second wicket to set the platform for the hard-hitters to follow. Ishan Kishan was starting to cut loose when Jofra Archer brought the best out of him to take probably the best catch of the season.

It was a short ball outside off from the young Kartik Tyagi, who was unit taken to the cleaners. Ishan Kishan threw his hands at it but managed to get only a thick outside edge. It went absolutely flying and Jofra Archer took a blinder in the deep.
