WATCH : David Willey’s overconfidence costs him crucial catch


Chasing a target of 181 runs, the Quetta Gladiators began their innings positively, scoring eight runs in the first two overs. However, their momentum was disrupted when Multan’s Mohammad Ali dismissed Jason Roy in the third over.

The responsibility then shifted to Khwaja Nafay and Saud Shakeel to guide Multan Sultans to a competitive total during the powerplay. Despite their efforts, Multan’s fielding struggles continued as David Willey missed a straightforward catch, leaving the Gladiators surprised and adding to their woes.

In the fourth over’s fifth ball, Willey’s delivery prompted Shakeel to flick the ball, but it edged up into the air. Willey signaled to the cover fielder, Usman Khan, indicating it was his catch.

Usman positioned himself for a possible rebound, but Willey juggled the ball twice, and despite Usman’s effort, he couldn’t hold on. Amidst the chaos, Multan’s wicketkeeper, Mohammad Rizwan, also attempted to catch the ball.

Twitter users found humor in the drop, and Willey’s confident call proved costly for his team as they lost a crucial wicket.
