The current edition of The Hundred has witnessed some remarkable displays of fielding, adding to the excitement of the tournament.
In a recent match, Welsh Fire secured an easy victory, largely due to Stephen Eskinazi’s impressive batting performance.
Yet, the standout moment that captured everyone’s attention was Roelof van der Merwe’s exceptional fielding effort. During the 67th delivery bowled by David Payne, Moeen Ali attempted a midwicket slog but mistimed it, sending the ball soaring.
Roelof van der Merwe, stationed at long on, initially dropped the catch, then made a second attempt, only to fumble again. However, he saved the situation with a stunning diving catch at the end.
This remarkable fielding display by the Dutch all-rounder earned him praise from cricket enthusiasts on Twitter.
