Rahul Chahar has just taken the best catch of the ongoing series between India and Sri Lanka and you can not afford to miss it! The Blues are currently taking on Sri Lanka on foreign soil in the second match of the 3-match T20 series and all the odds were against them even before the player could hit the field. The Indian Contingent have been hit by Corona Virus and more than 9 regular players of India’s starting XI have been ruled out of the last 2 T20 matches. It was allrounder Krunal Pandya who contracted the virus first and the players who came in close contact with him had to be ruled out for safety precautions.

As it now stands, team India is taking on the Lankans with as many as 4 debutants and they have only 5 batsmen available. However, form what can be inferred from the first few overs of Sri Lanka’s innings, this young Indian side is not going to make it easy for Sri Lanka.
Having won the toss, Sri Lanka opted to bowl first and it was indeed a right decision. The indian batting order lacked experience and they tumulted and collapsed after making just 132 runs in 5 overs. Captain Shikhar Dhawan (40 off 42) played the best knock of them all. It was a decent chasable target for Sri Lanka, but the Indian bowlers and fielders would do everything they have to, to do the unthinkable.

And that is exactly what Rahul Chahar showed in the initial moments of the match. Avishka Fernando lofted the ball high up facing Bhubneshwar Kumar, and everybody thought that it was going out for a six. But Rahul Chahar, who was present by the boundary line, had other plans. The youngster took a brilliant Kieron-Pollard like catch to shock us all and to dismiss the in-form Sri Lankan batsman, giving India their first wicket. The Mumbai Indians spinner failed to get a grip the first time. So he threw the ball mid-air, went out of the boundary-line to regain his balance, entered the field, and then successfully took the catch. Vintage Kieron Pollard vibes!
