Sanju Samson has been leading the Royals from the front with the bat and in the field as well, he took his wicket-keeping credentials to another level after taking a scintillating catch to remove Shikhar Dhawan.
Electing to bowl first after winning the toss, the Royals unleashed their left-arm new ball opening pair. Jaydev Unadkat, returning back into the squad, dismissed the in-form Prithvi Shaw off the final ball of his first over.
The bowler returned to remove Dhawan off the first ball in his next over. The left-arm batsman attempted to play a cheeky shot from wide off the off stump.
However, he did not get a good connection at all which resulted in the ball being lobbed behind the stumps. Samson, behind the stumps, plucked it out of thin air to complete the catch with a full-length dive to his right. Watch the catch right below:

Royals have been impeccable in the powerplay as Ajinkya Rahane was dismissed off the penultimate delivery of the powerplay.
DC are reeling on 36-3 after the powerplay with Jaydev Unadkat picking up all the wickets so far in a rampant three-over spell.
