A new video angle has emerged showcasing Suryakumar Yadav’s stunning boundary-line catch that dismissed David Miller during the 2024 T20 World Cup final. The clip clearly shows that Suryakumar’s foot never touched the rope as he skillfully juggled the ball before completing the catch, sending Miller back to the pavilion for 21 off 17 balls.

India, batting first against South Africa in the final, posted a total of 176-7 in their allotted 20 overs. South Africa, in their chase, appeared on track to reach the target, but India mounted a brilliant comeback to limit the Proteas to 169-8.

The pivotal moment came on the first ball of the final over when Suryakumar executed an exceptional catch right on the boundary to dismiss Miller. Despite some initial controversy sparked by a fan video suggesting that the third umpire may have made a hasty judgment, a new angle has dispelled doubts, confirming that Suryakumar maintained his distance from the boundary when the ball was in his possession and showcased remarkable presence of mind to secure the catch.

The viral clip not only highlights Suryakumar’s catch but also captures the anxious reaction of captain Rohit Sharma as the ball soared into the air, and the premature celebration of a security guard in the crowd.

Addressing the controversy in an interview with the Indian Express, Suryakumar Yadav confidently affirmed that he knew he hadn’t touched the boundary rope while completing the crucial catch that helped secure India’s victory at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados, on June 29.
