BBL 2020-21: Rashid Khan mind-blowing balancing catch at the edge

Big Bash League
The Big Bash League (BBL) latest edition is currently underway, and the standard of cricket on the show is already high with just five matches taking place so far. Sydney Sixers' Jordan Silk saved a six on the border with a fantastic effort on the first day itself, with many contrasting it with the similar heroics of Nicholas Pooran during the Indian Premier League (IPL).

During the fifth match of the season between Hobart Hurricanes and Adelaide Strikers, Rashid Khan came up with another such acrobatic at the boundary. During the Hurricanes' innings, the Afghan leg-spinner took a mind-boggling catch at deep mid-wicket to dismiss Colin Ingram.

When Ingram managed to smack a short ball from Peter Siddle high in the air, the incident took place in the 16th over the innings. The timing was good enough, but the batsman was unable to get the distance needed. For Rashid Khan, who was standing near the boundary line, it was a touch and go situation. To get hold of the ball, he judged it correctly but then almost lost his balance.

Rashid balanced him superbly on one leg, though, and after changing his stance three times, he got rid of the ball and then caught it coming back to the boundary again.
