New Delhi: After bowling out hosts England for 165 in the first innings, England ended the first innings on 326 runs on the second day of the first Test at Lord’s and the visiting team took a crucial 161 runs in the first innings lead. However, during the second day’s play, a great catch by English pacer Stuart Broad remains the subject of discussion. This catch is going viral on social media and fans are all in awe of Broad. Take a look at the catch below:
This catch was about a quarter of an hour before the end of South Africa’s innings, when Kagiso Rabada, who single handedly took over the bowling squad, tried to put a tremendous pull on the ball of Mats Potts. And when everyone felt that the ball was going for a boundary over mid-on, Broad jumped up as if he had broken an apple. Such a great catch was caught with one hand that Rabada could not believe once that he was out.
Such catches are rare in test matches,. Shortly after Rabada was caught, South Africa’s innings also ended. For South Africa, Sarrell Irvi scored 73, and Marco Janssen scored 48 runs. In the lower order, Keshav Maharaj scored a fast 41 and No. 10 batsman Norje scored 28 and this helped South Africa’s innings reach 236 runs.
