Standing at the slips, Gujarat Lions captain stunned everyone when he grabbed a sensational catch to remove Rising Pune Supergiants opener Ajinkya Rahane in an Indian Premier League match on Friday.

Electing to bowl, Gujarat Lions got off to a prefect start as medium pacer Praveen Kumar removed dangerous Ajinkya Rahane for a duck with the third ball of the innings.

The credit for the dismissal should go to Gujarat Lions skipper Raina who pulled off a one-handed blinder at the first slip from a good length delivery that came in after pitching and cramped the batsman for room only to induce an outside edge.

WATCH Raina's spectacular catch:

A hat-trick from debutant all-rounder Andrew Tye and sensible top-order batting helped Gujarat Lions outclass RPS by seven wickets at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium.
