Bhuvneshwar Kumar caught and bowled vs West Indies: The Indian pacer put on display an acrobatic fielding effort vs WI.
During the second ODI of the ongoing India’s tour of West Indies at Port of Spain, India fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar put on display an acrobatic fielding effort off his own bowling to dismiss West Indies all-rounder Roston Chase.
It all happened on the penultimate delivery of the 35th over when Chase mis-timed a Bhuvneshwar Kumar delivery. While Chase intended to hit the ball on the leg-side, he ended up lobbing it back towards the bowler.
With the ball going towards the left of Bhuvneshwar, he dived exceedingly well to catch the ball with one hand amidst in the air. The effort saw Chase, who came in to bat at No. 6 in the 28th over, going back to the pavilion after scoring 18 (23).
Having already dismissed West Indies’ Nicholas Pooran in the same over, Bhuvneshwar’s double-wicket over saw the hosts getting reduced from 179/4 to 179/6 while chasing 270 runs in 46 overs (DLS Method).
Bhuvneshwar, who opened the bowling for India alongside Mohammed Shami, ended up as the pick of the bowlers for the visitors. Becoming only the first visiting bowler to register a couple of four-wicket hauls at the venue, Bhuvneshwar registered bowling figures of 8-0-31-4 in an Indian victory.
