New Zealand’s Boult, playing for Delhi Daredevils in the lucrative Twenty20 tournament, leapt airborne on the deep square leg boundary to pouch one-handed forex training course in urdu shot by Virat Kohli, skipper of the Royal Challengers Bangalore, that appeared to be heading for six.
The wrong-handed diving effort by the left-arm pacer — completed just millimetres inside the boundary rope — left Kohli in disbelief and sent social media into a frenzy. I was stunned when he took it, that’s a brilliant catch. Kohli said after his team went on to win the match on Saturday night. Kohli added of his dismissal that came off the bowling of Harshal Patel. Don’t think you can even describe that as a catch that’s something different. The match will also be remembered for AB de Villiers’ unbeaten 90 off 39 balls that led Bangalore to a six-wicket win at M Chinnaswamy Stadium. The South African batsman hit 10 fours and five sixes to pulverise the Delhi bowlers, for whom Boult returned figures of 1-33.
The IPL is now in its 11th season with 60 matches over 51 days. The final takes place on May 27 in Mumbai. BUT I have a little doubt labeling it a greatest ever catch. Absolutely loving this years IPL, just mesmerising. There is nothiñg to be astonished. You are talking here sbout IPL where young blood of every cricketers dreamt to perform their best.
Great catch but have seen better. One has to be young, bold and tremendously fit to pull out a stunt like that. Amazing standard of cricket at IPL this year. This is the best tournament of cricketing world. I’v seen better catches in PLS.
The catch might be a good one but the powerful Indian media mafia is striving hard to give it an unnecessary spin to make it look like the greatest of all catches in the 200 plus years of cricket’s history. What a cruel cunning and crooked joke? Welcome to the club that sets the standards. Am addicted to the IPL, definitely the best to date. Perhaps the world is in awe because he got Kohli out.
