Kaushal Silva managed to pull off one of the best acts of fielding in recent memory by not just showing incredible athleticism but also coupled it with some astonishing presence of mind. Pakistan batsman Younis Khan played the ball from Rangana Herath onto his shoes and Kaushal Silva was quick enough to spot it, leap like a leopard towards the ball and when he realized he cannot hold on to the catch he lobbed it up in the air to keeper Dickwella who completed the catch.
Such acts of relay catching have been seen earlier with Adam Lyth and Aaron Finch showcasing similar traits over the boundary line. Below is the video for the catch that will be credited to Dickwella but will always be remembered for Kaushal Silva’s heroics.
