Watch: Mohammed Siraj Grabs A Brilliant Boundary Line Catch
During the first T20I of three-match T20I series between the hosts New Zealand and the visitors India at Westpac Stadium (Wellington), the substitute fielder Mohammed Siraj grabbed a superb catch in the close of the boundary line.
That incident happened during the death overs of New Zealand innings. In the 18th over of that innings, Colin de Grandhomme was facing Hardik Pandya when that incident occurred.
On the fifth ball of that over, the Indian all-rounder delivered a below the waist full-toss ball to Colin de Grandhomme. In reply, the Kiwi batsman slogged it to the deep square leg boundary. The substitute Indian fielder Mohammed Siraj took a running catch there, after keeping an eye on the ball till the end. He was fully aware of the situation and fell on the ground safely at very close of the boundary line.

Ross Taylor scored 23 off 14 balls, and Scott Kuggeleijn remained not out on 20 off just seven deliveries. At the end of 20 overs, New Zealand scored 219/6.
