Rahul Tripathi Dismisses Shubman Gill With a Stunning One-Handed Diving Catch. Rahul Tripathi took a fantastic diving catch to dismiss Shubman Gill as SunRisers Hyderabad beat Gujarat Titans.
In Match 21 of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 season, Rahul Tripathi took a stunning catch to assist SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar in dismissing Gujarat Titans (GT) batter Shubman Gill. Gill managed only seven runs off nine balls before being bowled in the third over. Receiving a length delivery around off, Gill hammered it with a lot of power to the left of Tripathi at covers, and it looked set for a boundary. Tripathi, on the other hand, had other plans and swooped in for a one-handed stunner.
