Top 3 best catches in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015: The ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 is underway in Australia and New Zealand, we are at a stage when the league round is almost over and all the teams have a match left. As we approach the Quarter-finals or the knockout stages, a look back at what happened in the round robin of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 got us to this particular zone.
The best catches, as it is a non-conclusive type of term so we decided to have the top 3 catches and let the viewers decide which they think and accept as the best.
In no particular order, here is how the catch was taken:
1. Jos Buttler c Steve Smith
England were in trouble against the Australians and they were trailing at 92-6 in 25.3 over’s. Jos Buttler the English wicketkeeper played one ball in the air, trying to get it past the covers fielder. But as we know Steve Smith is not just a human but SuperMan himself playing cricket. He almost flew in the air, a dive so long you would rarely get to see in cricket and ensured the bowler Mitchell Marsh had the final laugh.
2. AB de Villiers c C. Ervine
South Africa was playing a weaker opponent in Zimbabwe in their ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 contest South Africa were in a spot of bother with three wickets down for under 100 runs on the board and it looked like the Zimbabwean bowler’s would have the better of them. All of a sudden AB de Villiers the South African skipper who had high expectations from him, decided to take the areal route.
He used his feet, came down the track and lofted the bowler to hit a six, but then there was Ervine guarding the long off fence and perfectly timed his jump to grab the ball, but it was travelling and he could not control his feet; when Ervine realized he will touch the ropes, decided to throw the ball in the air again and came back to complete one of the finest catches we have seen thus far. By virtues of this South Africa were reduced to 4-83. But with the depth and quality in batting that they have South Africa reached 339-4 in their innings with Duminy (115) and Miller (138) hitting hundreds.
3. Solomon Mire c AB de Villiers
In the same game in which AB de Villiers was caught brilliantly by Ervine, he returned favor to Zimbabwe by pulling off this blinder on the field. Solomon Mirne pulled a short ball, trying to get a four for it. But de Villiers first sprinted his way to the trajectory of the ball and when he realized he was too far to reach it; put on a magnificent dive to grab the ball. This is surely one of the best catches that we will see in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015.
