With the rise of limited overs cricket in the form of One-day internationals and T20, the modern Cricket has changed a lot. These formats have changed the complexion of the games with batsmen becoming more dangerous, bowlers becoming cleverer, fitness becoming more important and fielding becoming one of the more required skillsets.
In the modern Cricket fitness is becoming as important for selection as anything. A fit player can play, field better than his counterparts. Fit players like Ravindra Jadeja, Virat Kohli, Ben Stokes, Kane Williamson play an important role while fielding in the outfield.
Kamlesh Nagarkoti, young pace bowler form Kolkata Knight Riders’ outfit, displayed a moment of such on-field brilliance when he took a sensational running catch against Rajasthan Royals at long-off.
The catch not only sent Jofra Archer back to the pavilion but also reminded fansthe 2004 India vs Pakistan game at National Stadium Karachi. In a decade, when fielding wasn’t the most demanded skill, Mohammad Kaif put on a show in field to leave an unforgettable imprint on the game. Mohammad Kaif pulled off a similar blinder in death overs to win India a close match.
Kamlesh Nagarkoti, playing his second IPL game after two years of injury setbacks, plucked out a sensational catch on the fourth ball of the 15th over.After hitting a six of the previous ball, Rajasthan Royals batsman Jofra Archer tried to go over long-off on the next ball.
But Jofra Archer couldn’t hit the ball cleanly as Varun Chakravarthy pulled his length back to leave Jofra in an awkward situation. Jofra ended up skewing the ball towards long-off, where Nagarkoti moved swiftly towards long-off to complete a sensational catch.
Terrific bowling performance as well. Bowling changes were spot on & the team balance looked good, pic.twitter.com/4gMvkRqjWy
