How many times have you had a change of fortune? Not quite often for most. But what if you became a lakhpati by just taking a catch? Sounds strange, right? A fan became a lakhpati by taking a catch in the crowd during the Mumbai Indians (MI) vs Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) encounter. The match is taking place at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, where both the teams are in dire need of a win to keep their campaign on the right track. Owing to a TATA Nexa initiative, the lucky fan has already received a cheque worth Rs 1 lakh. Not bad at all!
The batsman was Rohit Sharma (94) who was batting all guns blazing and slingshot the Mumbai Indians score past 200. The home team had got off to a horrendous start after Umesh Yadav picked up two wickets off the first two balls of the match. From there it was Even Lewis (65) along with Sharma, with some finishing kick provided by Hardik Pandya (17), who turned the innings around.
Here is the catch that has made the young man an overnight sensation:

Meanwhile, as we speak, RCB are going down the hill. They are 108 for 6 and need another 106 runs with 4 wickets and 31 balls remaining. That is almost next to impossible. But one upside is that Kohli has become the highest run-getter in the history of IPL. He has gone past Suresh Raina’s record.
