When the Indian Premier League (IPL) is on, loads of entertainment is on offer for everyone concerned. The Indian T20 league made a comeback to the country with crowds in stadiums after two-year hiatus due to COVID-19. But since it is back, the fans are not leaving any chance to turn up in high numbers to witness real-time cricketing action.
Being present on the ground also gives them a chance to show their catching skills when sixes are hit. A fan showed his skills by taking a brilliant catch in the stands during the SRH vs GT match. When Gujarat’s Abhinav Manohar hit a six off T Natarajan in the 18th over of the innings, the ball flew to the stands where a young fan pouched it quite comfortably to grab everyone’s eyeballs.

Sloppy fielding from SRH
While the spectator took a brilliant catch in the stands, Sunrisers Hyderabad fielders had a sloppy day on the field. They dropped as many as three catches of one player within 10 deliveries to make matters worse for themselves. It started with Aiden Markram failing to grab an easy chance while fielding at long-off. Abhinav Manohar got another life when Rahul Tripathi dropped a sitter at the same fielding position where Markram had dropped.
The third chance was a tough one though with the ball landing in the no-man’s-land. It was in the 19th over when Bhuvneshwar Kumar was bowling. Manohar tried to muscle a short ball from Bhuvi but only managed a top edge. The ball went up really high in the air. Three fielders including the bowler went for the catch but could not grab it cleanly. This sloppy fielding from SRH allowed Manohar to amass some quick runs for his team at the fag end of the innings.
