Former India international Stuart Binny recently made the headlines by taking a stunning catch in Karnataka Premier League (KPL) but it was former Australian cricketer Dean Jones who also shared the limelight with him. Jones who is commentating in the tournament along with Mitchell Johnson reproduced an excellent imitation of Binny’s catch and left even the latter’s wife Mayanti Langer in splits.
Binny, who has played six Tests, 14 ODIs and three T20Is for India, is currently representing Belagavi Panthers in the KPL was fielding on the boundary on August 25 when he caught a firmly hit shot from Bellary Tuskers’ T Pradeep from the air with just one hand. The Panthers’ captain was then seen running and celebrating the excellent catch with one of his teammates.
Jones and Johnson rerun Binny’s show
Later, the ground saw a rerun of the episode with Jones, and Johnson, another former Australian cricketer, imitating Binny’s show. Jones and Johnson are commentating for the league but they did not hesitate to get on to the ground to relive the Indian all-rounder’s performance. Jones played Binny’s role and aped his act with perfection and came running to Johnson who was his congratulating mate. He also threw kisses in the air as did Binny.
The 34-year-old cricketer could not hold himself back from laughing at home while watching the replay of the act, along with his wife Mayanti.
Mayanti in her video post on Twitter wrote- “Well done @ProfDeano @suhailchandhok but @MitchJohnson398 has a point, how is the knee? @StuartBinny84 @KPLKSCA @Belagavi_kpl”

Binny had a field day as he bagged the Man of the Match award in the game for his all-round performance that saw the Panthers beat the Tuskers by 22 runs.
Stuart, the son of former Indian all-rounder Roger Binny scored 194 Test runs and 230 ODI runs but his best mark on the international stage was taking 6 wickets for 4 runs against Bangladesh in 2014 which is the best by any Indian bowler in the 50-over format.
