Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals have finally locked horns with each other in the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League. Every day in this league has a special moment for the fans.
As we witnessed the flying kiss from Virat Kohli for his daughter and Rohit Sharma's heated argument with the on-field umpire. This time, we are going to see a unique celebration from the Rajasthan Royals players Riyal Parag.
During the game, the youngster grabbed the catch of the well-settled batsman Rahul Tripathi who was timing the ball quite well.

Summar of the match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals:
The skipper of Rajasthan Royals, Sanju Samson decided to bowl after winning the toss. They executed their plans very well in the powerplay overs as they restricted them below 30 runs.
Shubman Gill has been sent back to the pavilion by Jos Buttler who made him run out while he was trying to grab a quick single. Nitish Rana, Sunil Narine and Eoin Morgan were also returned to the dugout in the following overs with the numbers of 22, 6 and 0 respectively.
Then Dinesh Karthik joined with Rahul Tripathi and played a vital knock in the middle. Still, both of them came back to the dressing after scoring 25 and 36 runs to their name.
In the end, KKR posted 133 runs on the board which is below par score for any team at the Wankhede Stadium. Jos Buttler and Yashasvi Jaiswal gave a good start to Rajasthan Royals before the English cricketer being dismissed by Varun Chakravarthy for 5 runs.
Jaiswal followed Buttler in the next over of Shivam Mavi after hitting a boundary off the previous delivery. Then Sanju Samson and Shivam Dube made a crucial partnership in the middle and added 45 runs for the 3rd wicket.
After the departure of Shivam Dube and Rahul Tewatia, David Miller took the responsibility along with the captain and finished the game for his side.
