Chris Jordan Catch: The game of cricket has come a long way from being bowled at the tree stumps or the well-dressed, neat and trim gentlemen holding bats in their hands and playing and enjoying the game in a mild English summer. It’s utterly professional these days and on top of that, we see athletes in this game, like in the NBA or football, who pull something magical from up their sleeves every now and then. Even a decade ago, what we see today, most seems unfathomable.
Chris Jordan did something truly unthinkable in the India vs England 5th T20I match. Even for the fielding standard, we see today, that was really special, a rare moment in a game of cricket. The stats will show that Suryakumar Yadav was caught by Jason Roy off Adil Rashid’s bowling, but it was all Jordan’s work and incredible spontaneity near the boundary.
Suryakumar Yadav hit a shot that was destined to cross the boundary but a sprinting Chris Jordan somehow got hold of the ball and had to throw the ball in the air, but Jason Roy was at the right place at the right time to complete the catch.
When it mattered most, India’s captain Virat Kohli and vice-captain Rohit Sharma took the responsibilities into their own hands.
Rohit Sharma started off hot and it was Virat Kohli who ended in exactly the same way. Sharma forced himself on the English bowler like a lion going at the gazelle. Sharma was ruthless. He hit all the shots; the straight drives on the balls speeding beyond 90 miles and pull shots which may even belittle Australian legend, Ricky Ponting.
Virat Kohli needed not to be adventurous at the beginning as both Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav kept hitting almost every ball. But Kohli caught fire at the right time and boy he was a joy to watch. The Royal Challengers Bangalore captain played almost every shot you can think of.
