in their Indian Premier League match at the

Wankhede Stadium

in Mumbai on Thursday.
The incident happened on the second ball of the 12th over of the innings when off-spinner

Will Jacks

bowled a fuller delivery on the middle and leg and Rohit went for a sweep while dragging it behind square, but an alert Topley dived to his left and plucked a one-handed stunner right at the end of his fingers at short fine leg.

Rohit, who scored 38 off 24 balls with the help of three fours and as many sixes, gave Mumbai Indians a terrific start, in chase of 197, with his opening partner

Ishan Kishan


Playing second fiddle, Rohit and Kishan, who played a blistering 69-run knock off 34 balls, added 101 runs for the first wicket. Kishan hammered 7 fours and 5 sixes during his stay in the middle.
Interestingly, this was the 93rd time Rohit had opened the batting in IPL and the first time he has been involved in a 100+ opening partnership.
