Watch: Ryan Burl Takes Blinder To Dismiss Rishabh Pant During India vs Zimbabwe Contest At MCG

Rishabh Pant was dismissed early in the match between India and Zimbabwe on November 6 thanks to a spectacular catch by Ryan Burl of Zimbabwe at the midwicket boundary.

Following KL Rahul’s dismissal, the wicketkeeper-batter entered the crease for the first time in the playing XI for the T20 World Cup 2022 in place of Dinesh Karthik. Rishabh Pant initially played out a few of hits before looking for a way to start his inning.

In an effort to hit his first boundary, he tried a slog-sweep off Sean Williams. Rishabh Pant appeared to find a gap in the on-side field, but he was unable to go past the Melbourne Cricket Ground’s wider square boundaries (MCG). Burl made an absurd amount of progress to his left, stretched out fully, and timed it all perfectly to make a great catch.

Watch Ryan Burl’s Superman Effort To Dismiss Rishabh Pant

With India struggling at 99-4 in the 14th over after Rishabh Pant’s departure, there is some concern for India.

Virat Kohli was Also Caught By Ryan Burl

Burl had a significant influence with a cool-headed catch to get rid of the dangerous Virat Kohli before taking a stunner to get rid of Pant.

The leg-spinner, who was positioned at long-off, easily seized the opportunity after Kohli was unable to cross the boundary. Burl caught the ball in a pretty unusual way, as evidenced by replays.

To accommodate the ball’s landing position, he originally opened his hands vertically. When the ball touched his open left palm, he closed his right hand over it.

In the opening game of their final group match of the T20 World Cup 2022, Zimbabwe got off to a good start. With his first over, Richard Ngarava established the tone for the game, and in the fourth over of the innings, Blessing Muzarabani got rid of Rohit Sharma, the captain.

Rahul and Kohli’s developing partnership gave India the impression that they had laid the groundwork before a sudden spate of wickets slightly dampened their momentum.
