In the Chennai test match between India and Australia in 2004, Ricky Ponting took a blinder of a catch to dismiss Dinesh karthik. It was one of the best catches taken by Ricky Ponting.

This catch was amazing for three reasons:

1. Reaction time of 0.16 seconds i.e 1/6 th of a second. 

2. The dive was towards the left side which is not actually his preferred side of catching.

3. The shot was initially intended to be played on the leg-side but the ball flew off the top edge and went to the off-side.
