Ravi Bishnoi showed remarkable reflexes as he took a sharp catch to send back Brian Bennett in the ongoing third T20I between India and Zimbabwe at the Harare Sports Club.

Chasing 183 runs, Zimbabwe were off to a poor start, losing two wickets inside three overs. Avesh Khan gave India the first breakthrough by dismissing Wessly Madhevere for 1 run in the second over. In the third over, Khaleel Ahmed sent back Tadiwanashe Marumani for 13 before Ravi Bishnoi's stunning effort put India in the driver's seat.

On the first ball of the 4th over, Avesh bowled a short delivery outside off stump. The ball was there to be hit and Bennett did not hesitate. The right-handed batsman cut the ball hard and Ravi Bishnoi had a fraction of a second to react.

Well, the Indian spinner did not disappoint as he leaped quickly and caught the ball with both hands in a blink of an eye. Bennett just could not believe that he was dismissed and his reaction said it all as the Zimbabwe batter had a wry smile on his face as soon as Bishnoi completed the catch. Bennett departed after scoring 4 runs.

Watch the catch from Ravi Bishnoi:

Earlier in the game, captain Shubman Gill's fine fifty helped India post a big total of 182/4 in 20 overs. Gill and Yashasvi Jaiswal opened the innings and shared a 67-run stand for the first wicket before the latter departed for 36.

Unlike Jaiswal, Gill made the most of the start and went on to score his first fifty of the series. He scored 66 runs off 49 balls and was dismissed in the 18th over. Ruturaj Gaikwad also played a crucial knock, smashing 49 off just 28 balls to help India post the big total.

The series is currently locked at 1-1. Zimbabwe had won the first game by 13 runs before India won the second one by 100 runs to draw level.
