It was the fourth ball of the third over of the Sri Lankan innings. Avishka Fernando flicks the ball with full force. Now after raising the ball very high, it was going outside the boundary line that fast fielder Rahul Chahar blocked his way. Rahul, who came running from a long distance, caught the ball very cleverly and when it started going outside the boundary, then bounced it inside. Not only this, then came back and caught the ball.
The field umpires were also surprised to see this whole incident. After checking twice, the third umpire declared Avishka Fernando out. In this way, Rahul Chahar took a wonderful catch off Bhuvneshwar’s ball. Avishka scored 11 runs in 13 balls with the help of two fours. When Rahul took the catch, the joy of the Indian camp was being seen.
