In a high-stakes encounter in Bengaluru among India and Australia in the ongoing fifth T20I, Yashasvi Jaiswal's promising innings came to an end in a manner that mirrored the cutthroat soul of the series.

Facing the bowling of Jason Behrendorff, Jaiswal, who had already contributed an energetic 21 runs off 15 balls, attempted an ambitious shot. Behrendorff conveyed a very much calculated shy of-a-length ball around the off-stump, enticing Jaiswal to go for a pickup pull over mid-wicket. Nonetheless, the young Indian batsman mistimed his shot, resulting in a miscue that sent the ball soaring high into the night sky.

Under the strain of the lights and the magnitude of the challenge, the miscued shot transformed into an opportunity for the Australian fielders. Positioned at deep square leg, Nathan Ellis showed remarkable athleticism and self-restraint as he pushed ahead and capably got a steepling catch.

Behrendorff, having laid out the snare with a top notch conveyance, had the last laugh as Jaiswal's innings was stopped. The catch by Ellis added an extra layer of flair to the dismissal, reflecting the intensity and acrobatics associated with Aussie fielding.

At the hour of writing, India stands at 34/2 after 5 overs
