They took to Twitter on Monday to post a video of a great relay catch at the boundary line. In the video, two teams are seen playing cricket at an unknown location, where a fielder at the boundary line pulls off a stunning effort helping his teammate complete a relay catch.

Watch the stunning team effort here:
The relay catch is not new to international cricket. There have been plenty of occasions when players have worked together to complete a relay catch in international cricket or T20 tournaments around the world.
Even IPL 2019 had witnessed one such moment, when Delhi Capitals' South African cricketer Colin Ingram pulled off an extraordinary relay catch with teammate Axar Patel to bring to an end Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) star Chris Gayle's blistering knock at the Feroz Shah Kotla.
Fielding at deep mid-wicket, Ingram had leapt to take the catch but with the momentum taking him over the rope, the South African had the presence of mind to throw the ball with to Axar Patel, who completed the catch. The catch was also nominated as the 'Catch of the Tournament' in IPL 2019.
