Sanvir Singh is fast making a name for himself as one of the best fielders in the country as he pulled off an absolute stunner to send back the dangerous Ashutosh Sharma in the ongoing game between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Punjab Kings at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad.

On the first ball of the 19th over, T Natarajan bowled a slower delivery to the hard-hitting batsman. The right-handed batsman went for a big shot but failed to make a good connection and ended up miscuing the shot towards extra cover.

At first, it looked like the ball would land safely in the no man's land. However, Sanvir Singh was not ready to give up yet. The SRH player ran back, and took the catch over his head brilliantly before taking a tumble. He, however, made sure to not lose the ball. 

Watch the stunning catch from Sanvir Singh:

Earlier this season, he had pulled off one of the best catches of the tournament if not the best to send back Marcus Stoinis when SRH locked horns against Lucknow Super Giants. He had dived forward and caught the ball just inches above the ground to complete a sensational catch.

Talking about the game, PBKS finished their innings on  214/5 in the allotted 20 overs after their captain Jitesh Sharma won the toss and opted to bat first. Atharva Taide and Prabhsimran Singh gave PBKS a solid start by adding 97 runs for the first wicket. Taide scored 46 while Prabhsimran scored 71.

Rilee Rossouw also played a crucial 49-run knock before Jitesh Sharma's 15-ball 32-run knock helped PBKS finish the innings on a strong note. For SRH, T Natarajan was the pick of the bowlers, taking 2 for 33 in his four overs. PBKS are already out of the competition and will be looking to bow out of the tournament on a winning note.
