Rajkot: A real sportsman gesture was seen in the Indian Premiere League match at Saurashtra Cricket Association stadium when former New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum, despite taking a flying catch of Chris Gayle at long-off, indicated the umpire that his hat may have touched the rope.

Gayle had mis-hit a Jadeja's full toss which was about to sail through the fence before McCullum took an awe-inspiring flight to take the catch.

Umpires went upstairs which found the hat touching the rope, keeping Gayle in the house. He was also given six runs as well.

After the incident, another piece of sportsmanship was shown when RCB skipper Virat Kohli shook hands with the Baz to applaud his tremendous effort, near the fence.

Now, players would think twice before wearing cap when positioned near the ropes.
