  • New Zealand pace bowler Trent Boult has pulled off one of the most remarkable catches seen in cricket during an Indian Premier League game over the weekend.
  • Boult, playing for the Daredevils and positioned on the rope, launched himself at full stretch into air and just managed to grasp the ball in the tips of his fingers.
  • The New Zealander popped back up clutching the ball, appearing to even shock himself at the catch, before an ear to grin broke out his face as teammate Glenn Maxwell ran to congratulate him.
  • A stunned Kohli could do nothing but shoot glances between Boult’s direction and batting partner AB de Villiers as umpires checked the replay and confirmed Boult had not touched the edge and the out was given.
  • ‘Trent Boult’s catch is as good a catch as you will ever see,’ agreed Australian legend Shane Warne in a tweet.
