In what was described as "the best catch you'll ever see" by Michael Slater in commentary. Melbourne's West Indian all-rounder Dwayne Bravo lofted leg-spinner Rashid Khan over cover. Ben Laughlin raced towards the boundary rope to and completed the catch. Laughlin, who was the on verge of crossing the boundary line, whipped the ball backwards as he dived across the rope. Jake Weatherald showed great match awareness to get into a position to complete the catch.

Aided by the spectacular effort in the field, Adelaide restricted Melbourne to 147/7 to register a 26-run win. 

Batting first, Travis Head (58) and Colin Ingram's (68) fifties helped Adeliade post 173/5 in 20 overs.
