IPL 2018: Cricketers Reacts as Trent Boult Grabs the Best Catch Ever
The Delhi Daredevils (DD) fast bowler, Trent Boult arguably took the best catch in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL) as he dismissed Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper Virat Kohli, who was looking set for another fifty.
Despite that heroic effort, RCB managed to win the game by six wickets with two balls to spare.
Meanwhile, batting first, Delhi posted a challenging total of 174 runs in their 20 overs. Rishabh Pant played a swashbuckling knock of 85 runs from 48 deliveries. Shreyas Iyer also provided good support with a well-made half-century.
It was two timely partnership that sealed the game for the hosts. Skipper Virat Kohli steadied the innings after losing an early wicket.
However, during the 11th over of the match, Boult plucked onto a stunner to remove Kohli, who was looking in sublime touch.
It was the last ball of the over from Harshal Patel as Kohli whips it over square-leg. The Kiwi, while tracking back, pulled off a one-handed effort and somehow managed to stay within the boundary ropes, much to Virat Kohli and everybody’s shock.
Moreover, this is certainly the best catch of the season and is likely to win the award at the end of the season. Also, this catch is of that quality which cricket lovers will remember for ages.
Although it made no difference as AB de Villiers saw his team through with a 90 run knock. This win will take the home team to the fifth spot in the points table.
Here is how the cricketers reacted to Boult’s effort:
