IPL 2021: Faf Du Plessis takes a stunning catch to dismiss Manish Pandey
Chennai Super Kings fielder Faf Du Plessis takes a stunning catch to dismiss hard hitting Manish Pandey.
On Wednesday’s match between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Chennai Super Kings at Firoz Shah Kotla, the Sunrisers have won the toss and chose to bat first.
After loosing their key opener Johnny Bairstow early in the match for Sam Curran’s bowling attack, David Warner and Manish Pandey played an impressive 100 run partnership to take the team score past 100 runs and complete individual half centuries as they troubled Chennai bowlers who kept eyeing for a wicket to break the partnership between these two.
Lungi Ngidi was successful in breaking the partnership in the 17th over where he dismissed David Warner with a full wide outside off ball forcing Warner to slice the ball sending it directly to Jadeja for a catch.
After Ngidi broke the partnership, next in line was Manish Pandey who had already started going off, Ngidi bowled a fullish ball around off as Manish Pandey tried to hit hit hard but couldn’t cover the length, Faf Du Plessis ran all the way to take a dive to right and secure the catch.
Faf Du Plessis ran the length of the field for the catch he was still a little short so he decided to dive for it to his right and took yet another “superman catch” for himself.
Make that two! @faf1307 dives full length to his right at long on boundary. Manish falls too. Lungi has his 2nd wicket now. #SRH 138-3 after 18 overs.https://t.co/dvbR7X1Kzc #VIVOIPL #CSKvSRH pic.twitter.com/6VhgLr92II

Faf Du Plessis is famous for his determination on the field when it comes to taking extraordinary catches or making crucial saves for the team, he is known as the superman for some of the catches he has taken so far in IPL which seems extremely unreal and unbelievable. Today he has added yet another moment for cricketing fans across the country to gasp about as he put on the Cape once again for CSK to take Manish Pandey’s catch and dismiss him to land a huge blow to Sunrisers batting.
