In the ongoing India vs. Bangladesh match, Mohammed Siraj’s delivery to Mehidy Hasan resulted in an impressive diving catch by KL Rahul, leading to Mehidy’s dismissal.

During the 25th over of the India vs. Bangladesh match in Pune, Mohammed Siraj delivered a remarkable wicket-taking ball to Mehidy Hasan. Siraj’s delivery was on a challenging length, directed at the middle and angling toward the leg side. Mehidy Hasan attempted a cautious flick, but he managed to touch it only with his glove. The ball then swung wide of the wicketkeeper, KL Rahul, who executed a stunning left-handed catch while diving to his left. This extraordinary effort by Rahul resulted in Bangladesh losing their third wicket in the match, leaving them at 129/3.

Earlier in the match, Bangladesh’s stand-in captain Shanto made the decision to bat first after winning the toss. The opening moments of the game were tough for the Bangladesh openers as Mohammed Siraj and Jasprit Bumrah displayed their accuracy right away.

However, Tanzid Hasan and Litton Das gradually found their footing and managed to establish a rhythm. Tanzid Hasan impressively notched up a half-century, providing Bangladesh with a solid start, but his innings were cut short by Kuldeep Yadav, who delivered a much-needed breakthrough for India. This moment triggered a chain of successes for the Indian team. Ravindra Jadeja then dismissed Najmul Hossain Shanto, while a remarkable catch by KL Rahul allowed Mohammed Siraj to send Mehidy Hasan Miraz back to the pavilion. Although India faced a setback with Hardik Pandya’s ankle injury, their quick succession of three wickets has brought them back into the game.
