As the Match 4 of Legends League Cricket between India Maharajas and Asia Lions kicked in Oman on Monday, there were a few concerns regarding how the contest would fare up without fans inside the stadium. But much to everyone's delight, it only took one delivery for all the action, drama and excitement to return.
After Mohammad Kaif decided to field first on a slightly cold evening in Muscat, Stuart Binny got his side to a dream start. Starting off with his natural out-swinger, the all-rounder did what he does best on first ball of the contest.
Tillakaratne Dilshan, who looked in good touch in previous game, wanted to get going from the start as he tried to put his bat to ball. Unfortunately, he was deceived by the pace and swing of the delivery as the ball was hit back towards the bowler.
Although it looked like Binny would not be able to reach the ball, the all-rounder dived low towards his left to take a spectacular catch, drawing first blood on the evening.
