The wicketkeeper took a surprising catch. (screen grab)
Many surprising things keep happening in cricket. Sometimes a team bats in a stormy manner and sometimes the bowlers make it difficult to score runs. Surprising catches and run outs have also been seen in fielding. But currently a video of a catch is going viral on social media. Hardly anyone would have thought of the kind of catch that the wicketkeeper has taken in this video. Seeing this catch, one is surprised and also laughs. No, this catch was not taken in any international match, first class, List-A, T20 match. This catch was taken in a local tournament of tennis ball.
The video shows that this match was played between teams named KPL and KCL. The tournament in which this match is being played is a tennis ball tournament. This match was played with a red colored tennis ball in which the wicketkeeper created a stir by taking a catch.
caught by the waist
In cricket, the catch is taken with the hand. But this wicketkeeper has caught the catch with his waist and back. You may not believe it after hearing it, but if you watch this video, you will also have to believe it. The left arm bowler bowled the ball in the second over of KCL’s innings. The ball was on the line of off stump and was slower. The batsman tried to play on this front but the ball took the edge of the bat and went to the wicketkeeper. The ball was on the right side of the wicketkeeper. But it was very low, so the wicketkeeper dived. The wicketkeeper tried to catch this with one hand but the ball slipped from his hand and bounced. But in the meanwhile the keeper fell on the ground and the ball started falling after hitting his waist. But then the wicketkeeper stopped him with his hand and thus with the help of his waist and hands, he took the catch while lying upside down.
