With no fielders stationed there, Samson and Avesh charged in to capture the ball. Both went for it, but neither completed the dismissal. Samson acknowledged the humorous side of Rajasthan’s attempt and responded with a sly jab after the game.

“It gets a bit tough actually – the stadium is full of noise and when people call, we are looking at the ball, we can’t look who is coming. I need to tell my fast bowlers that it’s a bit easier to catch with the gloves instead of hands,” said Samson.
