Yes, we are talking about the incident that happened during the fielding of Anukul Roy. In the 8th over of Rajasthan Royals’ innings, Butler’s paddle sweep shot was played off Sunil Narine, after which the ball went straight towards fine leg. Seeing the ball going towards the boundary, Anukul Roy stopped the ball while hitting a dive but when he was picking it up, the ball accidentally hit his hands and went too close to the boundary after which the fielder picked up the ball and threw it towards the wicketkeeper.
