Unfortunately for Rohit, he skyed the ball inside the 30-yard circle while attempting a pull shot on the fifth delivery of the fifth over.
The M Chinnaswamy Stadium is currently buzzing with Indian Premier League excitement, as the host Royal Challengers Bangalore are playing the five-time champion Mumbai Indians. April 2
After winning the toss and opting to field first, Royal Challengers are currently dictating terms to Mumbai Indians by reducing them to 20 for the loss of three wickets inside the powerplay. RCB has taken an early lead after a string of early wickets. Things weren’t looking great for them at one point, though, because they gave the Mumbai Indians captain a life when he was only batting 1.

Attempting a pull shot on the fifth delivery of the fifth over, Rohit skyed the ball inside the 30-yard circle. As Mohammed Siraj, the bowler responsible for inducing the top edge, went for the catch, wicketkeeper-batter Dinesh Karthik was trying to get set.
The two players tripped over each other and blew a golden opportunity due to poor coordination. Karthik went for the catch because he was closer to it and must have felt confident about pulling off the same with his wicket-keeping gloves, but Siraj also fancied his chances, and the collision between them helped Rohit’s cause as he survived the scare.
