Chasing a stout target set by Mumbai, Rajasthan's top order crumbled early. However, just as it looked like they were getting their game back on track courtesy of a steady knock by Jos Buttler, Kieron Pollard went and took a sensational catch to apply the salt deeper into Rajasthan's wounds.
After Buttler sent it over long-on, Kieron shuffled around and leapt for the ball with his right hand, clutching it momentarily before it headed back to the ground only for his left to get in position and this time, he hung on it.
The reactions were instantaneous, starting with this one by Sachin Tendulkar:
