During the 16th over of Sunrisers Hyderabad’s innings, Pat Cummins was waging a lone battle amidst a batting collapse. The veteran Kolkata Knight Riders off-spinner Sunil Narine was keeping things tight, having conceded only two singles after giving away four byes on his first ball of the over.

Narine, bowling the fifth ball of his over, cleverly tossed it up, luring Cummins into an ambitious big shot. Cummins, taking the bait, mistimed his attempt, sending the ball high into the air. What seemed like a straightforward catch for Mitchell Starc turned into an unexpected lifeline for Cummins. Starc, positioned perfectly to take the catch, surprisingly dropped the ball, letting his national teammate off the hook.
