Jason Roy catch: Watch Scorchers batsman grabs absolute stunner to dismiss Shaun Marsh in BBL 10

Jason Roy catch: The batsman from Perth Scorchers contributed on the field after his mediocre knock in the first innings.

During the 25th match of the ongoing 10th season of the Big Bash League between Perth Scorchers and Melbourne Renegades in Perth, Perth Scorchers opening batsman Jason Roy put on display a praiseworthy fielding effort to dismiss his counterpart in Shaun Marsh.

It all happened on the fourth delivery of the fifth over when Marsh’s attempt to cut a short and wide delivery from Aaron Hardie led to his dismissal. While Marsh didn’t err with respect to the timing of the shot, Roy at backward point produced an absolute stunner to send the former back to the pavilion.

Marsh, who opened the batting with a new partner in wicket-keeper batsman Sam Harper (4), became part of a batting collapse which saw his team getting reduced to 59/7 in the ninth over in a 186-run chase.

At the time of writing this article, Marsh had top-scored for Renegades with his 14 (11) comprising of one four and six each.

Roy, who had scored 27 (32) with the help of two fours after asked to bat first by Renegades captain Aaron Finch, appeared to be making amends for his mundane knock on the field.

On the back of a 117-run impact-generating partnership between wicket-keeper batsman Josh Inglis (72*) and batsman Colin Munro (52), Scorchers posted a formidable 185/3 in their allotted quota of 20 overs.
