Mitchell Santner Defies The Laws Of Physics As He Takes A Jaw Dropping Catch - WATCH

Catching is one of the most vital parts of the game of cricket which decides whether or not a match is won or lost. After observations on this account, the popular expression "catches win matches" gained currency.

As a result, because this is a factor that has the potential to turn the game on its head, players tend to fling themselves whenever they sight the spherical airborne object on the pitch.

Teams devote extra training sessions to catching practise so that no opportunity is missed during the game.

International cricket has changed and seemingly soared as a result of the practise, to the point where fielders now find out how to get hold of even the most difficult of catches. Mitchell Santner recently witnessed one of these types in Dubai.

UAE hosts New Zeland in 3-match T20 series

Every board is providing match practise for its squad as each country prepares for the upcoming ICC ODI World Cup 2023. Similarly, New Zealand is playing a bilateral series against the UAE. The first T20I of the three-match series was played on Thursday, August 17.

New Zealand batted first and scored 155 runs on par. In response, the UAE stayed in the game for a while, but a magnificent effort from Mitchell Santner kept the Middle Eastern team from smelling victory.

Mitchell Santner takes a stunner in 1st T20

After losing two fast wickets, UAE's Aryansh Sharma was on fire and was well backed by Asif Khan. The two were batting at 9 runs per over, and their combination was threatening to steal the game away from the Kiwis. A breakthrough was required, and Mitchell Santner stepped forward to offer it.

In the seventh over, he bowled a faster one to Asif Khan that pitched at the boundary of the short and good length zones. The ball slammed into the batsman and rose slightly.

It was bound to land safely, but Santner flew to his right in search of an unusual scalp. Here's a fantastic perspective on the Blackcaps all-rounder.

Following the wicket, there was a collapse, and New Zealand won the match by 19 runs. Tim Southee, who took a 5-fer, was named the match's MVP. The second T20 between New Zealand and the UAE will be held on August 19, 2023.
