Rajasthan Royals (RR) clinched an exciting final over Punjab Kings (PBKS) in match 32 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 season on Tuesday at Dubai International Stadium. Despite the defeat, Punjab had many positive aspects to think about, including some brilliant batting by KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal. One moment that stood out from the rest was Fabian Allen’s brilliant catch to dismiss Liam Livingstone. Punjab initially won the toss and preferred to bowl first, with Rajasthan adding several boundaries to the scoreboard.
In the 12th over of RR’s innings, Arshdeep Singh sent a tantalizing delivery to a confident Liam Livingstone, who tried to clear the boundary ropes in the deep midwicket. But Allen had other plans: a beautiful dive in length to catch the ball and send Livingstone back to the pavilion.
