Watch: Bhuvi takes a superb return catch
Cricketers have perfected the art of taking some of the stunning catches over the years. Well, taking a catch is not a piece of cake but it is an emotion as billions of fans count on the fielder to take the catch when the ball is high in the air.
It is up to the fielder who can make it or either break it. However, a great scene was witnessed during the match between West Indies and India when Bhuvneshwar Kumar stole the spotlight for his outstanding return catch.
Bhuvneshwar ensured to keep his line and length so good that the batsman Roston Chase who was on strike literally had no clue to make a decision at the split second. He was surprised by the ball as he fell prey to Bhuvi’s hands at the 35th over.
Here’s how Bhuvneshwar Kumar stunned the cricket fraternity by taking a spectacular return catch. Watch the video below to get complete clarity on the incident:

With the ball in hand, Bhuvneshwar Kumar was the man of the hour for India, registering figures of four for 31. However, the highlight of Bhuvneshwar’s performance came in the 35th over when he took an absolutely sensational return catch to send Roston Chase packing.
India batted first and managed to get 279/7 in their quota of overs. In reply, when West Indies started their passage of play, rain played spoilsport for some time and then the target was revised to 270 off 46 runs. West Indies did pretty well managed to get to 179/4 in 35 overs but then they fell like a pack of cards and were skittled out for 210 runs with 4 overs to spare.
Thanks to Bhuvneshwar Kumar for helping India at the need of the hour as India wrapped up a comprehensive 59–run win (DLS method) in a rain-curtailed second One-Day International (ODI) at the Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain, Trinidad on Sunday.
Captain Virat Kohli was named the man of the match for his stellar 120 off 125 balls (14 fours, 4 sixes) as he notched dup his 42nd ODI century and thereby ending a run of 10 games without a century.
