In the second match of the Major League Cricket (MLC) 2024 between the Texas Super Kings (TSK) and the Los Angeles Knight Riders (LAKR) at Grand Prairie Stadium in Dallas, Derone Davis showcased extraordinary fielding skills, taking a stunning catch that left the crowd in awe.

The moment of magic

The thrilling moment occurred during the 14th over of the Super Kings’ innings, bowled by Ali Khan. On the fifth delivery, Ali bowled a short ball that batter Joshua Tromp smashed towards the third man. The ball seemed destined for a boundary, flying high and fast. Davis, stationed at third man, had to act quickly. With no time to reach the ball conventionally, he threw himself into a dive.

The spectacular catch

As the ball popped out of Davis’ hands during the dive, it seemed the chance might be lost. However, displaying remarkable presence of mind and athleticism, Davis managed to grab the rebound with his right hand. Despite the challenging circumstances, he made the catch look both easy and his ability to keep his eyes on the ball while falling to the ground was nothing short of exceptional.

The crowd erupted in applause, and the video of Davis’ incredible catch quickly went viral, showcasing the high level of skill and excitement that MLC brings to the field.

Unmukt Chand shines with the bat

Electing to bowl first, the Super Kings aimed to restrict the Knight Riders to a manageable total. However, despite early setbacks with Jason Roy and Sunil Narine falling cheaply, Unmukt Chand anchored the innings brilliantly. Unmukt’s splendid knock of 68 off 45 balls, which included 6 fours and 3 sixes, provided a solid foundation for the Knight Riders.

Contributions from Nitish Kumar, who scored 26 off 17, and Corne Dry‘s quickfire 12 off 4 balls, helped LAKR post a competitive total of 162/7. For the Super Kings, Zia-ul-Haq and Aaron Hardie were the standout bowlers, each taking two wickets and conceding 16 and 26 runs respectively.

Ali Khan’s sizzling bowling take the Knight Riders home

Chasing 163, Texas Super Kings’ innings was led by Devon Conway, who scored a solid 53 off 39 balls. Despite Conway’s efforts and a quick 29 off 18 from Calvin Savage, the Super Kings struggled to build partnerships and lost wickets at regular intervals.

The Knight Riders’ bowlers were disciplined, with Ali being the pick of the bowlers, claiming 4 wickets for 33 runs in his 4 overs. Spencer Johnson and Narine also made significant contributions with 2 and 1 wicket respectively. Their efforts restricted Texas Super Kings to 150/8 in their 20 overs, falling short by 12 runs.
