Cameraman steals the show in yesterday's match

It is a well-renowned fact the ongoing Carribean Premier League (CPL) is more of a carnival than a cricketing league. The place currently consists some of the major internationals representing their respective franchises. Be it, Chris Gayle, to Brendon McCullum and Shane Watson, literally every second player in the league is a star. Amidst all the glitz and glamour, a modest cameraman stole the show in the match between St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots and Barbados Tridents.
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots, who are currently the form team, are placed at the third position in the table, as they won the last three matches of the league. They took on the Barbados Trident who currently placed at the fourth position of the table. Akeal Hussain was handed the first over of the match between the two giants of the league.
The batsman at the other was Evin Lewis, who is the latest T20 sensation from the Carribean. The left hander has the knack of picking of T20I hundreds against India. He did that twice by now in a gap of 1 year. One can imagine the terror on the bowler as they face Gayle and Lewis opening for their team.
Hossain bowled a well-flighted delivery which Lewis dismissed it out of his sight, the very first ball he faced. That was the fifth delivery of the over but effectively the tenth ball of the over. Hossain was clearly struggling with his line and length as he delivered five consecutive wide balls before he could bowl his first ball.
The captain of Barbados Trident, Kieron Pollard, who was placed at long-on, could only watch ball sail past over his head. But to everyone’s surprise, Lewis was caught, not by any fielder but the cameraman who was filming the event from his position.
Here’s the spectacular catch
