Trent Boult took a one-handed stunner near the boundary rope to dismiss Virat Kohli.
The Royal Challengers Bangalore captain was settling in with AB de Villiers.
The pair had struck 63 off 39 balls to take the hosts to 92 after losing two wickets for 29 runs, which included the dangerous Quinton de Kock for 18.
Kohli looked settled on 30 off 26 balls when he flicked a full toss from Harshal Patel off his pads flat over Boult’s head. The New Zealand speedster recovered well to take a one-handed catch by leaping to his right at deep square, landing on his stomach and keeping his chest up to prevent himself from touching the rope.
A stunned Kohli was the Royal Challengers Bangalore’s third wicket to fall.
