On Saturday, Virat Kohli produced a catch out of thin air against the Delhi Capitals at the Wankhede Stadium. He dismissed Rishabh Pant and soon gestured to Anushka, who appeared to be impressed by the catch.
Pant took a wide full toss from Mohammed Siraj on the 17th over of the chase and attempted to throw it over extra cover. The DC captain, however, toe-ended his shot towards Kohli at extra cover, who instinctively leapt and finished a one-handed stunner. Kohli’s celebration included waving to his wife Anushka Sharma in the stands after completing the catch.

After Maxwell had rescued RCB from a precarious 40/3 after being asked to bat first by Delhi Capitals skipper Rishabh Pant after winning the toss, Karthik launched a ferocious counter-attack and shared a 97-run partnership with Shahbaz Ahmed (32 not out off 21 balls) for the unfinished sixth-wicket partnership.
Glenn Maxwell, an all-rounder, also made an important contribution, scoring 55 runs off 34 balls.
