For a fielder who sets very high standards for himself, Suresh Raina is not allowed to drop the sitter like he did in the previous game of the Nidahas Trophy 2018 against Bangladesh.
One way to redeem himself was through a pouching stunner. To nullify the wrong, with a spectacular right. Though in a game against Sri Lanka, Raina did just that when he anticipated Danushka Gunathilaka’s on-side heave off Shardul Thakur, stretched quickly to his left and wrapped his fingers around a fast travelling ball away from the body.
Going for the catch with both hands, Raina timed his flight to perfection and thus completed a stunning catch.
Here’s the video:
