Watch: Chetan "Superman" Sakariya takes a spectacular catch to remove Nicholas Pooran
Rajasthan Royals and Punjab ings locked horns in the 4th match of the Indian Premier League. During the game, the debutant Chetan Sakariya grabbed a spectacular catch to send off the West Indies power hitter Nicholas Pooran back to the dressing room for a duck.
Coming to the match, the skipper of Rajasthan Royals Sanju Samson asked the opposition to bat after winning the toss. Though they dismissed Mayank Agarwal cheaply, they were destroyed by Punjab's batsmen.
Gayle built a good platform for the middle-order batsmen along with the skipper KL Rahul. During the 10th over, Sanju Samson decided to hand over the ball to all-rounder Riyan Parag.
He bowled his normal delivery to Rahul but had a surprise one for Universe Boss. Parag unleashed a round-arm ball that was delivered from a very low trajectory. It even made the umpires warn the bowler.
But, in his very next delivery to Gayle, he dismissed the West Indies cricketer. The all-rounder delivered his normal off-spin but Gayle mistimed the ball that landed on Stokes' hands.

What happened in the second half?
The stage was well set for middle-order but Deepak Hooda came out of the syllabus as he went to smash 64 off just 28 deliveries. He destroyed the RR bowling attack and smacked the bowlers all around the park.
With the help of skipper KL Rahul's destructive knock of 91 off just 50 deliveries, Punjab posted a huge total of 221 on their board. Rajasthan Royals opened the innings with Ben Stokes and Mana Vohra.
Ben Stokes had been dismissed for a duck as the English cricketer miss-timed the ball and was grabbed by the bowler Mohammed Shami. Sanju Samson took charge from there and started to respect the bowlers all around the park.
He didn't get good support from the other end as Jos Buttler, Shivam Dube, Riyan Parag have been sent back to the dressing room by Punjab bowlers with the numbers 25, 23 and 25 respectively.
In the end, Rajasthan Royals needed 5 from the last ball and was hit straight to the fielder by Sanju Samson. His stunning knock of 119 from 63 balls including 12 boundaries and 7 sixes earned him the Man of the Match award.
