On the other hand, Shikhar Dhawan’s superb effort from the second T20I to get rid of English captain Eoin Morgan was stunning as well. Dhawan clung on in the deep to dismiss Eoin Morgan with a magnificent leaping effort on the boundary.
Here are the two catches.
Chris Jordan’s catch:
The Shikhar Dhawan catch:
Both the catches had their own significance. It was important at that stage to get rid of KL Rahul as he was looking ominous and vice-versa. Ironically, both the catches came in losing efforts for their side.
Jordan also took a terrific return catch off his own bowling to dismiss Virat Kohli. The ball was hit like a bullet and it somehow managed to find Jordan’s hands. That too was a terrific catch.
Meanwhile, it was Rohit Sharma’s 100* and Hardik Pandya’s career-best 37 for 4 that ensured there are no slip-ups and India win the series.
India will now take on England in the upcoming 5-match One Day International series starting in 72 hours. The T20Iseries win will give India a lot of confidence ahead of that face-off.
