Delhi Capitals Kiwi recruit Tim Seifert gave a good account of his fielding efficiency in his debut for the new franchise in the IPL 2022 contest against Mumbai Indians at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai on Sunday. 

Seifert, fielding at square leg in the 16th over of the Mumbai Indians innings, pulled off a catch of the season contender early in the IPL 2022 as he flew to his left at full stretch to grab an excellent catch from the shot hit by all-rounder and vice-captain Kieron Pollard. 

However, even though Delhi Capitals wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav, didn’t bowl the best of his deliveries in the penultimate ball of the 16th over, the catch rewarded him with his third wicket in his first match of the season for the Delhi franchise.

Tim Seifert catch: How the social media reacted

Seifert’s effort on the field was acknowledged by cricket fans. One of the fans already claimed it ‘the catch of the season’ while others were in awe of his brilliance. 

Seifert, meanwhile, contributed 21 runs off 14 deliveries in the chase of 178 runs against Mumbai Indians. His knock was laced with four boundaries to the fence. 

Earlier, Opener Ishan Kishan (81 not out) played a whirlwind knock to take Mumbai Indians to 177/5 against Delhi Capitals. Asked to bat, the opening pair of Rohit Sharma (41) and Kishan forged a stand of 67 runs on a quick outfield with shorter boundaries. The Mumbai Indians captain smashed four boundaries and two hits over the top in his 32-ball innings.

The left-handed opener, who was fetched for a big sum by the Mumbai franchise at the IPL mega auction, continued to play his natural game despite losing his opening partner.

Incoming batter Anmolpreet Singh (8), however, failed to add much to the tally of the team while Tilak Varma made a short but sweet debut as he notched up 22 runs off 15 deliveries.

Kieron Pollard (3) and Tim David (12) could not last long at the crease but Kishan made sure to pile on the misery on the opposition bowlers from the other end. His prolific 48-ball unbeaten knock was laced with 11 boundaries and two hits over the fence.

Mumbai Indians’ tally was also helped on by Daniel Sams (7 not out) who hit a six in the two balls that he faced in the innings.
