WATCH: KL Rahul’s jaw-dropping catch turns the tide in the second Test against Australia

KL Rahul’s catch to dismiss Usman Khawaja during the second Test match between India and Australia in Delhi was nothing short of spectacular. The catch not only brought the crowd to their feet but also sent shockwaves through the Australian team.

The catch was taken during the 46th over of the Australian innings when Khawaja was batting on 81. Ravindra Jadeja, the left-arm spinner, was bowling to Khawaja, and he tossed one up outside the off-stump. Khawaja, in an attempt to play the reverse sweep, hit the ball powerfully, but the ball found the outstretched right hand of KL Rahul at backward point.

Here’s KL Rahul’s catch to dismiss Usman Khawaja:

The catch was taken in a split second and left everyone, including Khawaja, stunned. The ball had come off the middle of the bat, and it looked like it was heading to the boundary. However, Rahul, who was stationed at a close position, reacted quickly and dived full length to his right. He put his right hand out and took the catch inches above the ground, showcasing his excellent reflexes and agility.

The catch was a testament to Rahul’s fielding prowess, and it was one of the best catches ever taken in Test cricket. The Indian team erupted in celebration, and the crowd at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi roared in appreciation of the effort. Even Khawaja, who was the victim of the catch, was left in awe of Rahul’s stunning grab.

The catch was not only a moment of brilliance but also a turning point in the game. Khawaja was looking set to score his second Test century and take Australia to a big total. However, Rahul’s catch ended his innings, and Australia lost their momentum.

Australia were 199/6 at the end of 56 overs with Peter Handscomb batting at 36 and captain Pat Cummins batting at 23.
