IPL 2022 – RCB vs KKR: David Willey makes a great catch to push Nitish Rana away© BCCI/IPL
Royal Challengers Bangalore got off to a great start against the Kolkata Knight Riders in their second match of IPL 2022, with KKR losing four wickets with less than 50 runs on the board. Indian medium pitcher Akash Deep had been the star of the show as he took the wickets of Venkatesh Iyer and Nitish Rana.
While the bowler perfected the catch and bowling to send Iyer back to the pavilion, Englishman David Willey perfected the stunning catch by running backwards from Akash Deep’s bowling alley.

The medium pitcher uses short passes well when he deflects both batsmen by throwing short balls.
Both left-handed players miss doing a pull-up as the ball gets bigger on them as they try to pull away from trouble.
While Iyer checked his shot and got the lead, Rana continued with it but the ball wasn’t far enough.
RCB captain Faf du Plessis has decided to go down first after winning the throw.
