Will Sutherland catch: The pacer from Melbourne Renegades contributed significantly on the field at the Manuka Oval.
During the 14th match of the ongoing 10th season of the Big Bash League between Sydney Thunder and Melbourne Renegades in Canberra, Melbourne Renegades pacer Will Sutherland put on display an excellent fielding effort to dismiss Sydney Thunder captain Callum Ferguson.
It all happened on the fourth delivery of the penultimate over when Ferguson’s attempt to up the ante in the last two overs found him back in the pavilion. In what was a full-length delivery from Thunder pacer Kane Richardson, Ferguson hit it down the ground.
Sutherland, who was fielding at long-on, ran quite a distance towards his left before timing his dive to perfection to register a sensational catch. Having earlier put an end to Olivier Davies’ blazing innings, Sutherland followed his solitary wicket with this catch.
Coming in to bat at No. 3 in the seventh over after his counterpart Aaron Finch won the toss and chose to field, Ferguson departed after scoring 31 (31) with the help of two fours.
While Davies scoring 48 (23) in the middle overs played a big role in Thunder ending up with 209/8 in 20 overs, opening batsmen Usman Khawaja (34) and Alex Hales (35) did pretty well to get them off to a praiseworthy start.
For Renegades, Richardson was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 4-0-33-2 and was well-supported by spinner Peter Hatzoglou (4-0-36-2). In Sutherland and all-rounder Mohammad Nabi, the pair picked a wicket apiece.
