51st match of Indian Premier League 2017 played between Mumbai Indians and Kings XI Punjab at the Wankhede stadium turned to be a high scoring game. Both the teams scored runs and smashed bowlers all-round the park. KXIP put 230 runs on board and needed some extraordinary effort on the field to stop the hosts from chasing it down.
Martin Guptill showed his flying skills as he took a blinder to dismiss Lendl Simmons who was looking dangerous. Lendl Simmons was dismissed for 59 facing 32 balls.
Here’s the video of Guptill’s catch:

When the bowlers are getting smashed, the fielders have to take wickets. That was one for @Martyguptill. Could be a game changer.
