Rahul Tripathi was in the thick of the action during the final throes of the humdinger between Kolkata Knight Riders and Punjab Kings, who ticked off the 165-run target with three balls to spare. For starters, Tripathi took a fantastic diving catch running in from mid-wicket, though the umpire deemed otherwise after taking a long hard look. In the ultimate over with Punjab needing just 5 to win, Rahul grassed a catch off Venkatesh Iyer that could have potentially turned the game in Kolkata’s favour.
