The fielding standards in the ongoing Big Bash League 2022 in Australia are something that have made the entire cricketing fraternity to talk about. The ardent cricket fanatics have witnessed some amazing blinders in the 12th season of the prestigious Australian franchise T20 League. A similar sort of stunning athleticism has been seen in the ongoing 52nd match of the tournament between Perth Scorchers and Melbourne Renegades.
This time, it was Will Sutherland who amazed everyone with his outstanding fielding heroics on the second ball of the 16th over when Tom Rogers was bowling to Perth’s Nick Hobson. The latter happened to loft it over the mid-off region, the hit was quite good, but it went higher than Hobson expected.
Subsequently, Sutherland ran back towards the direction of the mid-off region and took an extreme jump to his backside, and landed up beautifully with a clean catch to his name.
Here’s the video of a brilliant catch by Will Sutherland:
