The Indian cricket team were defeated by the Australians in the first of the three T20I series match today. The Men In Blue failed to chase the target runs of 174. Now the Australians are leading with 1-0 in the Australia tour.
As the match kickstarted, Indian skipper Virat Kohli won the toss and chose to field first and this decision didn’t came out as a surprise because of the amazing batting line-up Indian cricket team was having today. However, the team failed to chase the runs and the weather played an important role in that, as the rains interrupted the match a few times.
Although, there were many misfield happened in the match, including the missed catch by the skipper Kohli, but there was this one catch that was brilliantly caught by Kuldeep Yadav to dismiss D’Arcy Short, that left everyone stunned.
It happened in the fifth over of the match when Khaleed Ahmed came to deliver his first over of the match. The Indian bowler Khaleed Ahmed, wouldn’t have asked for a better start than this to the Australian tour, especially on his first ball itself, he knocked out D’Arcy Short with the help of an amazing fielding by Kuldeep Yadav.
D’Arcy Short tried hard to smash the shot perfectly but, unfortunately, all he managed was to lob the ball up in the air, where Kuldeep Yadav was waiting to grab an amazing catch.
Here, have a look at the video of the amazing catch taken by Kuldeep Yadav here :
A wicket off his very first ball on Australian soil, this will be a story that Khaleel tells his grandchildren! 😉
