The 13th match of IPL 2020 was won by Mumbai Indians. Rohit’s team defeated Kings XI Punjab by 48 runs. All-rounder Kieran Pollard was the hero of this victory. In this match, batting, bowling and fielding of Mumbai Indians was very good. While Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya and Pollard did well in batting, James Pattinson and Bumrah completed the remaining work from bowling.
Rahul Chahar also took two big wickets, while Suryakumar Yadav made a great fielding. In this match, good fielding was done from both the teams. But the best thing about the match was the fielding of Glenn Maxwell. He worked wonders to dismiss Rohit Sharma.
# What did Maxwell do?
Maxwal and Neesham together caught the catch of Rohit Sharma, captain of Mumbai Indians. In the 16 overs of Mumbai Indians innings, Rohit Sharma played an aerial shot off Mohammad Shami’s ball. The ball went to the long off boundary. Here Maxwell caught the ball near the boundary while running.
Although he had come very close to the boundary while taking the catch and was about to cross the boundary, but just before that he bounced the ball into the air. Neesham already present here completed the rest of his leap. With this, both of them ended Rohit Sharma’s innings playing brilliantly.
Mumbai captain Rohit had hit Neesham 22 runs in one over before the start of this over. This catch also became very popular on social media. People gave various responses to this. Some Twitter users shared photos / videos of 2018 and reminded people that Maxwell had dismissed Rohit in the past.

During the last catch, Maxwell used to play with Delhi Capitals. At that time, he dismissed Rohit through a relay catch with Trent Bolt. Both times, the New Zealand player supported Maxwell in dismissing Rohit. The funny thing is that Bolt now plays for Rohit’s team.
