“Catches win the matches”: 5 stunning catch from IPL


Each season the IPL provides fans with some sensational moments on field and this year too it has not disappointed either. Taking spectacular catches on the boundary line is no longer a spectacular event as teams practice the same and replicate it on field. Here in, we take a look at the five best catches so far from the IPL.

1. Guptill vs Mumbai Indian

Chasing a mammoth target of 230, Mumbai were given a great start to their chase by their openers Parthiv Patel (38 runs off 23 balls) and Lendl Simmons (59 runs off 32 balls).


2. Corey Anderson vs Gujarat Lions

The duo put on 99 runs for the first wicket until Parthiv Patel was sent back. But the real danger was from the West Indian. Simmons was tearing Punjab's bowling apart with his attacking batting and Maxwell and his boys needed to see his back soon in order to put pressure on the hosts.


3. Virat Kohli vs Rising Pune Supergiant

The incident happened off the second ball of the ninth over of RPS innings when Tripathi played a cracking cover drive off Pawan Negi. Kohli dived and took a marvelous one-handed catch. Tripathi was stunned and the look on his face said it all.


4. Ben Stokes vs Delhi Daredevils

Shami whacked Jaydev Unadkat towards the deep mid-wicket fence, Stokes spotted the chance and timed his jump perfectly. Though Ben Stokes took the catch with his stretched arms, it was important for him to first land inside the ropes, which he managed with elan, and then balanced himself on one foot and throw the ball in the air, so that when the momentum took him beyond the ropes, the ball would not be in contact with him.


5. Suresh Raina

The credit for the dismissal should go to Gujarat Lions skipper Raina who pulled off a one-handed blinder at the first slip from a good length delivery that came in after pitching and cramped the batsman for room only to induce an outside edge.
