Virat Kohli's 'Superman' Catch To Dismiss Peter Handscomb Has Social Media Buzzing

Sign in to follow this  


Last week, Virat Kohli lost his wicket in the first innings of the 1st Test between India and Australia at the Adelaide Oval after Usman Khawaja pulled off an absolute blinder in the gully region. On 14th December, the Indian captain produced a gem of a fielding effort of his own during the first day's play in Perth.

Trailing 0-1 in the four-match series, Australia were eager to put their best foot forward when they won the toss and decided to bat first in the 2nd Test. 

The likes of Aaron Finch (50) and Marcus Harris (70) gave the hosts a solid start, adding 112 runs for the first wicket. But, the likes of Jasprit Bumrah, Umesh Yadav and Hanuma Vihari struck in quick succession to ensure the Aussies were left reeling at 134/3.

This was the time when Peter Handscomb (7) came to the crease to partner Shaun Marsh (45) in a bid to stabilise the innings for the hosts. The duo had added 14 runs for the fourth wicket when Ishant Sharma got Handscomb to edge the ball through to the slip cordon where Kohli - fielding at second slip - deployed a full stretch towards his right, with both his feet off the ground, before plucking it in the air with a one-handed effort.

Kohli's brilliant catch sparked frantic celebrations on the field as Ishant got his first wicket in the game where he had earlier looked inconsistent in his line and length, probably in a bid to keep his front foot behind the line to avoid bowling yet another no-ball.

According to CricViz Fielding Impact—which measures the value of fielding by considering the difficulty of the fielding event and the run value of the event (which varies according to the batsman)—Virat Kohli's catch was worth +23.50 runs to India. #AUSvIND

Following Kohli's commendable fielding effort to send Handscomb packing, Australia managed to find some rhythm in the crucial 84-run partnership between Marsh and Travis Head (58) for the fifth wicket. But, Vihari and Ishant struck again to send the two dangerous-looking batsmen back into the hut.

On a day where the batsmen looked relatively at ease against the Indian bowlers, Australia scored 277 runs at the loss of six wickets in 90 overs on the first day in Perth. With Tim Paine (16*) and Pat Cummins (11*) at the crease, the Indian team will be eager to bowl the hosts out as quickly as possible before coming out to bat on the second day.

Here's how cricket fans reacted to Kohli's brilliant fielding effort on Day 1:

Brilliant overhead slip catch by @imVkohli. Yo! Or should that be Yo-Yo?

@anup1704 @ravi_sudi @VadirajH This is better than the catch that Khawaja took. Look at his balance after taking the catch, doesn't even fall down and makes it look so easy
