Jayveer Parmar’s incredible catch to dismiss Abhinav Mukund: The Gujarati fielder put on display a top fielding effort in Bengaluru.
During the second semi-final of the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy between Gujarat and Tamil Nadu in Bengaluru, Gujarat pacer Jayveer Parmar put on display a top fielding effort to dismiss Tamil Nadu opening batsman Abhinav Mukund.
It all had happened on the last delivery of the 20th over when Mukund’s attempt of upping the ante saw him losing his wickets predominantly because of a breathtaking catch at long-off.
Having chipped a Karan Patel delivery down the ground, Mukund had thought of his shot landing safely but it wasn’t to be as Parmar ran towards his left before timing his dive to perfection to grab the catch.
Mukund, who opened the batting with Murali Vijay (3), ended up scoring 32 (65) with the help of three fours. Other than Tamil Nadu captain Dinesh Karthik scoring 47 (47), it was Shahrukh Khan who scored 56* (46) with the help of three fours and three sixes to seal the 178-run target in the 39 overs (only an over to go).
After Karthik won the toss and put Gujarat in to bat, they scored 177/9 in their allotted quota of 40 overs. Coming in to bat at No. 4 in the fifth over, Dhruv Raval top-scored for Gujarat after scoring 40 (37) with the help of four fours and a six.
With bowling figures of 6-0-23-3, Tamil Nadu pacer M Mohammed was the pick of the bowlers for them. Apart from him, Baba Aparajith, Ravichandran Ashwin, Washington Sundar, Murugan Ashwin and T Natrajan picked up a wicket each.
