Fielding also plays a vital role in the game of cricket between the ball and the bat. Players often try to do something while fielding, after seeing which the spectators find it difficult to believe their eyes; Ugandan player Frank Nsubuga has done something similar.
Surprisingly, this 41-year-old player has done such a feat which can be difficult even for young players. He has taken a brilliant catch, the video shared by ICC on its social media handle.
The saying “catch the catch, win the match” becomes true after every match. An example of how a catch can turn a game can be traced to the 1983 West Indies vs India World Cup when Kapil Dev dismissed deadly batsman Viv Richards, a similar catch now in the CWC Challenge League Group B match against Kenya. And during the confrontation with Uganda, Frank Nsubuga is caught.
The ICC has shared this video of the catch of Frank Nsubuga. Nsubuga is fielding in the direction of mid-wicket during the batsman tries to play a big shot by moving forward, but due to poor contact between the ball and the bat, the ball gets stuck in the air.
The ball is coming down fast enough that Frank Nsubuga, 41, runs fast backward to catch the ball and finally dives to catch the ball. After seeing his effort, the audience is forced to leave his chair and stand.
One of the finest catches you will ever see 🤯

Also, if we talk about the match, then in this match, Uganda has defeated Kenya by 7 wickets. The match played in the CWC Challenge League Group B ended in a thrilling situation. Kenya was restricted to just 220 runs which Uganda achieved in 45.1 overs. Simon Ssesazi contributed 112 runs for Uganda. With this win, Uganda remains on top of its group.
