A fall in the Tamil Nadu Premier League being played these days reminded fans of the Pakistan cricket team. In fact, the second qualifying match of the tournament was played between Dindigul Dragons and Nellai Royal Kings. In this match, three Nellai Royal Kings players left traps in the middle.
After this catch, the fans remembered the catch of former Pakistani cricketer Saeed Ajmal which he dropped against the West Indies in 2008. Now the fans again remembered this catch of Ajmal. In the match between Pakistan and the West Indies, Chris Gayle shot at Umar Gul’s ball and the ball went airborne. Shoaib Malik also reached alongside Sayej Ajmal to catch the catch and they both leaned on each other and no one touched the ball.
Now the exact same incident has come to light in the Tamil Nadu Premier League as well. Batting first, Subot Bhati fired a shot at the first ball of the Dindigul Dragons 20 and the ball went flying behind the wicketkeeper. Three players, including the goalkeeper, rushed to catch the ball, but trusting each other, the three did not put out their hands to catch it, and the ball fell exactly in the middle of the three.
Where have we seen this before?
