Chris Jordan catch vs Melbourne Renegades: The Scorchers’ pacer put on display a top-notch fielding effort in Perth.

During the seventh match of the ongoing ninth season of the Indian Premier League between Perth Scorchers and Melbourne Renegades in Perth, Perth Scorchers pacer Chris Jordan grabs astonishing stunner to dismiss Melboune Renegades all-rounder Daniel Christian.

It all happened on the penultimate delivery of the 18th over when Christian hit a delivery from Perth spinner Fawad Ahmed down the ground.

Having hit the ball towards the right of Jordan, the right-hand batsman wouldn’t have expected Jordan to run to his right and then time his dive to perfection to grab a fantastic catch.

Coming in to bat at No. 6 in the 18th over, Christian ended up scoring 0 (2) as he had no option that to hit the big shot with his team requiring 38 runs off 14 balls.

Chasing a 197-run target, the visitors lost the match by 11 runs as individual half-centuries from Beau Webster (67*) and Shaun Marsh (55) weren’t enough for them.

Apart from his sensational catch, Jordan was involved in another boundary-saving fielding effort alongside batsman Liam Livingstone. Having registered bowling figures of 4-0-30-2, the 31-year old player was also the best bowler for his side.

After Melbourne captain Aaron Finch won the toss and invited the hosts in to bat, Perth posted a handsome 196/7 in 20 overs on the back of half-centuries from batsman Cameron Bancroft (51) and captain Mitchell Marsh (56*). With bowling figures of 4-0-22-4, Richardson was the pick of Melbourne bowlers.
