India’s Rahul Chahar took a beautiful catch at the border to see Sri Lanka’s opening Avishka Fernando during the second T20I of the three-match series at R. Premadasa Stadium, Colombo, on Wednesday.
It all happened in the third innings of the second innings when Fernando hit an aerial shot from the Indian seam bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Fernando found himself in trouble when he gained more height than was necessary.
Chahar, with a fine leg, walked a long way to his right to catch. The 21-year-old maintains his balance well, and before going over the boundary rope, he hits the ball in the air and catches it again after landing on the playing field.
It was an incredible display of outside catch by the young boy. Bouler Bhuvneshwar and coach Rahul Dravid looks very happy with Chahar’s brilliance.

Brilliant catch by Rahul Chahar. Not the first time you see him take a good one in the field. Feels like he’s India’s best fielder among specialist spinners. Varun, Chahal, Kuldeep, Sundar, Ashwin etc. (Excluding Jadeja / Krunal). If he bowls well, it gives him an advantage. #SLvIND

An exhausted Indian team also came out dangerous to record rugby victories and seal the T20I series, but a determined Sri Lanka came back strong in death wins the second match by four wickets and pushed the series into a decisive position on Thursday (July 29).
