During the 2018 season of the Indian Premier League, the Sunrisers Hyderabad played against the Rajasthan Royals in Jaipur. After winning the toss, the Sunrisers chose to bat first and lost Shikhar Dhawan early on in the innings. However, Alex Hales and Kane Williamson stabilized the innings quite well.

In the ninth over, Ish Sodhi was bowling to Hales when the latter attempted to hit the ball towards the midwicket boundary but was caught by Ben Stokes instead.
