Known for his fluent drives, massive sixes, effective medium-pacers and astute leadership; fielding is one discipline that that Indian cricket legend Sourav Ganguly never mastered. However in the twilight of his career, he defied the odds and pulled off this amazing catch.

During the 17th match of 2010 season between Mumbai Indians (MI) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Ganguly, the captain of KKR, created a benchmark on the field when he plucked an absolute stunner at short cover to dismiss a well set Saurabh Tiwary.

Batting first at the sluggish Brabourne surface, KKR posted 155 on the board in their 20 overs. MI in return got off to a flying start and rocketed to 117 for one inside 14 overs. On the last delivery of the 14th over from Ishant Sharma, Tiwary attempted a lofted cover drive but was beaten with the bounce and some movement off the track. The ball failed to get the middle of the bat and didn’t have enough power to clear the in-field. Ganguly was fielding at short covers had a look at the ball and leaped in the air to pull it off with one-hand.

Despite of the stellar effort from the captain, KKR couldn’t prevent a defeat but this catch was certainly one of the best from Ganguly’s career.
