Ajinkya Rahane and Rachin Ravindra pulled off a brilliant catch at the boundary ropes to get rid of the big RCB fish Virat Kohli in the IPL 2024 opener on Friday, March 22. While RCB got off to a brilliant start on the back of a strong powerplay by Faf du Plessis, CSK soon made a thumping comeback after the first six overs. 

Bangladesh seamer Mustafizur Rahman helped CSK in their comeback. Meanwhile, Rahane and Rachin pulled off a brilliant catch at the boundary ropes. The jaw-dropping effort took place during the 12th over of the first innings. 

Mustafizur banked on his slower ball and bowled one back of a length delivery that angled across Kohli. The batter looked to generate power and clear deep mid-wicket but could not get enough of power. Rahane ran to his right with his eyes on the ball, took the catch and then had a slide to the boundary. But as he got closer to the boundary cushion, he relayed the ball to Rachin, who came from deep square-leg and took the catch with ease.
