LSG vs RCB: With Athiya Shetty in attendance, KL Rahul takes brilliant diving catch

Athiya Shetty was spotted in the stands as KL Rahul took a brilliant catch vs RCB

KL Rahul must be loving life at the moment. The 29-year-old scored a brilliant century in Lucknow Super Giants’ (LSG) 18-run win over Mumbai Indians lately and against his former side Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Tuesday, he produced a brilliant fielding effort to dismiss Anuj Rawat. 

Standing near mid-on, Rahul dived full-length towards his front to collect a catch after Rawat had fluffed a shot off Dushmantha Chameera’s full-length delivery. 

From the looks of it, the catch appeared contentious and even the on-field umpires opted to take a second look at it, but much to KL Rahul’s relief, the third-umpire ruled that the ball had landed into his arms first, as it appeared close to the ground.

Netizens meanwhile also noticed that KL Rahul’s rumoured girlfriend Athiya Shetty was also in attendance at the DY Patil Sports Academy in Navi Mumbai, where the match between RCB and LSG took place. 

Moreover, this wasn’t the first time, that Athiya was seen supporting her rumoured beau from the stands, as earlier, her father Suniel Shetty and their family also came to watch another match of the Lucknow Super Giants.
