6 best one-handed catches in ODI cricket
- 6 magical one-handed stunners from ODI cricket history.
#5 Dwayne Leverock (Port of Spain, 2007)
Over the years, some of the Affiliate and Associate ICC members, though considered to be minnows, have given us some great moments. One such moment was the stunning one-handed catch pulled off by the Bermuda cricketer Dwayne Leverock during the 2007 World Cup.
A policeman by profession who also drove a police prison van, Leverock was the largest player on a cricket pitch, weighing a staggering 20 stone (280 pounds or 127 kg). It was his catch off the bowling of Malachi Jones and the wild celebrations that followed which caught the imagination of the cricketing world.
Diving away to his right, he completed a one-handed stunner to dismiss India’s Robin Uthappa. Unfortunately, India piled on the runs, scoring 413 and winning quite easily in the end.
