“Catches win you matches” is a famous proverb in the game. Yusuf Pathan is not generally known for his heroics in the field, but the Sunrisers Hyderabad all-rounder was able to take a one-handed stunner to dismiss Virat Kohli.
It was an important wicket at that stage, and Pathan took a great catch. Meanwhile, Virat Kohli was already dropped by Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper Kane Williamson in the slips.
Sunrisers Hyderabad continues their domination in the ongoing IPL, as they got the better off Royal Challengers Bangalore by five runs. The Orange Army bowling unit was once again on target, as they successfully defended 146.
It was a fine bowling effort from the hosts, as they kept their supremacy going. Kane Williamson-led team has won eight matches out of the ten they have played. Thus, they have sealed their playoffs berth.
Meanwhile, Yusuf Pathan is well known for his pyrotechnics. However, Sunrisers Hyderabad batsman was not able to contribute much with the bat. Pathan had scored only 12 runs off seven balls.
Pathan was able to make up for his batting failure in the field, as he took a fine one-handed catch. Even Pathan wore a surprised look on his face after taking a blinder. Pathan was seen complaining that the lights were in his eyes when he grabbed that catch.
Sunrisers Hyderabad will now lock horns against Delhi Daredevils on May 10 at latter’s home ground of Feroz Shah Kotla.
Here is the video of Yusuf Pathan catch:
