It occurred in the final over of the powerplay in the first innings. Bumrah set Shaw up with 3-good-length balls outside the off-stump; look at the right-handed youngster’s patience.
The 4th ball was a shock, complete effort bouncer, always rising and always coming in, giving Shaw no possibility to get out of the way.
The 22-year-old gloved it in the face of the helmet, and the ball swelled in the air. Kishan scampered forward with the gloves and put in a fully-timed dive to grab it with equal hands.
Previously, Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma got the toss and opted to bowl primary on the lively-looking Wankhede pitch. Bumrah and Sams took just 3.2 overs to eliminate the in-form top-order batters, David Warner, as well as Mitchell Marsh.
This was Shaw’s primary match since returning from infirmity. His short stay at the crease looked good, hitting 2-fours and a six, but Mumbai’s pace forefront had other plans. The wicket decreased the Capitals to 31-3 in just 5.4 overs.
A couple of calm overs followed, but leg-spinner Mayank Markande then got Sarfaraz Khan to edge a leg-break to Kishan, bringing the run to 50/4 in 8.4 overs.
Rishabh Pant is the final prickle in Royal Challengers Bangalore’s expectations after Jasprit Bumrah’s special wicket.

Such a bright start would be a bittersweet sight for Mumbai Indians fans who would have desired it to happen before the tournament.
But for the Faf du Plessis-led Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), whose wish to reach the top-4 depends on the Capitals’ defeat, it couldn’t get any better.
It all now depends on captain Rishabh Pant, who has a great record against Mumbai, and Rovman Powell to take the Capitals to a decent total.
