You beauty! Axar ‘flying’ Patel grabs one-handed stunner to dismiss Mitchell Marsh in IND vs AUS tie

Axar Patel provided a moment of magic not with his bat or bowl but with his exceptional fielding efforts near the boundary ropes against the mighty Aussies.

Axar Patel’s brilliance in the field might have just swung the momentum of a crucial tie in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024. In a moment that has left commentators and fans speechless, Axar snatched a one-handed screamer to dismiss Australian skipper Mitchell Marsh.

With the match finely balanced, Marsh, looked to launch an attack. He swung his bat powerfully at a delivery from Kuldeep Yadav, sending the ball sailing towards deep backward square leg. It seemed destined for the boundary, but Axar Patel had other plans.

Watch Axar Patel take the blinder!

In a moment of pure athletic brilliance, Axar flung out his right hand, seemingly out of nowhere, and plucked the ball from the air with a single palm. Maintaining his balance perfectly, he ensured the catch remained inside the ropes, sending the crowd into a frenzy. This was extra special, considering it was Axar’s non-dominant hand (his right).

The commentators were left speechless, simply exclaiming “WHAT A CATCH!” and “OH MY WORD!” This remarkable feat of fielding was a major turning point of the match, derailing Australia’s momentum. Due to this, the Kangaroos lost all three of Marsh, Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis within a span of 30 balls.

Social media was also abuzz with praise for Bappu’s sensational catch. Many called it the catch of the tournament, and it’s certainly a contender for one of the best catches ever witnessed in a T20 World Cup.
