Watch - India vs New Zealand: Washington Sundar Pulls Off Stunning One-Handed Catch To Dismiss Mark Chapman
Washington Sundar completed a stunning catch to claim his second wicket against New Zealand in Ranchi.
Washington Sundar pulled off an amazing one-handed catch off his own bowling to dismiss Mark Chapman during the first T20I encounter between India and New Zealand in Ranchi on Friday. India skipper Hardik Pandya decided to hand the ball to Sundar early in the innings to take advantage of the movement off the pitch and the all-rounder did not disappoint. Sundar foxed the in-form Finn Allen with a slower delivery as the opener was caught in the deep for 35. Just a few balls later, Chapman miscued a shot off his bowling and Sundar pulled off the caught and bowled by diving full length towards his right.
