A contender for the ‘catch of the tournament’, Mumbai Indians’ Suryakumar Yadav showcases quick skills as he takes a flying catch to dismiss Rahul Tripathi in the Indian Premier League clash against Kolkata Knight Riders on Friday.
In the 3rd over of the match, MI’s Trent Boult bowled a slow bouncer to Tripathi, who took a firm shot. However, Suryakumar leaped into the air and pulled off a brilliant catch, sending a surprised Tripathi back to the pavilion for 7. The superb fielding left the New Zealand bowler Boult in awe.
