Watch: Batsman looks in disbelief as he starts laughing after Ravi Bishnoi hits a spectacular knock in IND vs ZIM’s third T20I

Ravi Bishnoi

Ravi Bishnoi showed remarkable reflexes as he took an accurate catch to send Brian Bennett back in the ongoing third T20I between India and Zimbabwe at the Harare Sports Club.

Chasing 183 runs, Zimbabwe got off to a poor start and lost two wickets in three overs. Avesh Khan gave India the first breakthrough by dismissing Wessly Madhevere for 1 run in the second over. In the third over, Khaleel Ahmed sent back Tadiwanashe Marumani for 13 before Ravi Bishnoi’s stunning effort put India in the driving seat.

On the first ball of the fourth over, Avesh bowled a short delivery outside the base stump. The ball was there to be hit and Bennett did not hesitate. The right-handed batsman cut the ball hard and Ravi Bishnoi had a split second to react.

Well, the Indian bowler did not disappoint as he quickly jumped up and caught the ball with both hands in the blink of an eye. Bennett simply could not believe that he had been dismissed and his reaction said it all as the Zimbabwean batsman had a wry smile on his face as soon as Bishnoi completed the catch. Bennett departed after scoring 4 runs.

Earlier in the match, captain Shubman Gill’s excellent fifty helped India post a total of 182/4 in 20 overs. Gill and Yashasvi Jaiswal opened the innings and shared a 67-run stand for the first wicket before the latter was out for 36.

Unlike Jaiswal, Gill made the most of the start and managed to score his first fifty of the series. He scored 66 runs off 49 balls and was dismissed in the 18th over. Ruturaj Gaikwad also played a crucial role, scoring 49 runs off just 28 balls to help India post the big total.

The series is currently tied at 1-1. Zimbabwe had won the first match by 13 runs before India won the second by 100 runs to draw level.
