India U19 duo pull off stunning one-handed two-man catch against Ireland
India’s U19 team have been going from strength to strength in their current campaign of world domination in the ongoing World Cup in Bangladesh, having almost sealed their way to the knockout stages already.
The most talked-about moment from their campaign till now, however, has been a catch taken by a combined effort by wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant and Ricky Bhui in the match against Ireland.
In the 15th over of Thursday’s match, Ireland lost their third wicket to slip to 43/3, to eventually lose by 79 runs. It was Rahul Batham’s over which saw the catch, and Adam Dennison was the batsman who was the victim of the brilliant catch.
A two-man one-handed catch – what great teamwork!
Here is how the sequence of the catch was:
Dennison edges the delivery
Pant gets his hand to the ball
The ball slips out of his hand
Bhui changes his posture after ball slips out
Bhui gets his hands under the ball
Bhui pouches it to pull off sensational catch
