When MS Dhoni was shocked by 'epic blinder' from Sam Billings

The wicketkeeper-batsman took a brilliant running catch to end the 42-run third wicket stand between MS Dhoni and Ajinkya Rahane.

RPS were cruising comfortably towards victory when Imran Tahir bowled a quicker and fuller delivery on middle and leg stump, which Dhoni swung towards deep midwicket, where young Billings jumped up high near the rope and took an epic blinder.

A visibly surprised MS Dhoni could only admire the brilliant piece of fielding from the Australian as he walked towards the dug-out.

Riding on opener Ajinkya Rahane's fifth half-century of the tournament and Thisara Parera's explosive cameo, after Dhoni's departure, Supergiants defeated Daredevils by seven wickets. Chasing 163, Pune got off to a brilliant start with Rahane and Usman Khawaja (30) laying a solid platform.
