Watch: West Indies Star's Smart Boundary Line Catch In ICC World Cup Qualifiers 2023
The West Indies star's smart work at the boundary line during ICC World Cup Qualifiers match vs Nepal turned a six into a catch.
West Indies' star player Keacy Carty took a superb boundary line catch during his team's World Cup Qualifiers match against Nepal at Harare Sports Club, Harare on Thursday. On the first ball of the 23rd over that was being bowled by Akeal Hosein, Nepal batter Kushal Malla tried to go for a big one. The ball travelled towards the long-on where substitute fielder Carty was stationed. The fielder took the catch and lobbed it in air just before he jumped over the boundary rope to balance his body. The ball would have fallen outside the playing area for a six but Carty made a really good adjustment to turn it into a catch.
