Devdutt Paddikal’s catch of Shreyas Iyer during the Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Delhi Capitals game was a reminder of how the game of cricket keeps evolving.
What was a difficult catch on the ropes may now seem like regulation stuff.
To a ball which was flighted around off, Capitals’ captain Iyer went for a big hit with the spin and heaved it to deep mid-wicket where Padikkal settled under it and clutches with both hands.
He then threw the ball up, went outside the boundary rope and came back in to complete the catch.
Excellent awareness shown by the youngster.
