On Saturday, in the ongoing seventh edition of the Big Bash League (BBL) 2019, Perth Scorchers’ Chris Jordon took a stunning gravity-defying against Melbourne Renegades. Meanwhile, it was one of the best catch ever had in cricket history. In the video, England all-rounder Jorden can be seen flying in the air to take the extra-ordinary catch.
It all happened in the seventh match of the ongoing BBL season at Perth Stadium in Perth. During the 18th over of the Renegades’ innings, Fawad Ahmed had bowled a half-volley to Dan Christian. And the batsman had slogged the ball, but Jordon came running from long-on and took an amazing diving catch to his right. It was a phenomenal catch from Jordan at widish long-on.
Big Bash League’s (BBL’s) official twitter handle had posted the video. And wrote in the caption, “Chris Jordan, ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! #BBL09.” Thereafter, ICC has also come up with a tweet to share the video with the caption, “Chris Jordan, just wow”. Catch from Chris Jordon helped Perth Scorchers’ to turn the tide game. Here we are sharing the video of the Gravity-defying catch at the end of this article.
