IPL 2017: Gautam Gambhir Juggling Catch Leaves Virender Sehwag Amused

Kolkata Knight Riders rode on skipper Gautam Gambhir and surprise opener Sunil Narine's heroics to register a facile eight-wicket win over Kings XI Punjab at the Eden Gardens on Thursday.

Chasing 171 for victory after asking Kings XI to bat first, Gambhir (72) notched up his 33rd IPL fifty to guide his team through for their second win in three matches.

Gambhir's knock ensured KKR a smooth victory over Glenn Maxwell-led KXIP, but there was one moment in the match when the skipper couldn't prevent a fumble.

The incident happened on the second last ball of the KXIP innings when Varun Aaron hit a ball high in the air with Gambhir trying to catch it.

Gambhir made three fumbles and then pouched it completely.

The catch left KXIP director (cricket operations) Virender Sehwag, who was sitting in the dug-out, amused.
