WATCH: Uganda’s Frank Nsubuga takes one-handed stunner vs Kenya in World Cup Challenge League

The catch reminded the cricket fraternity about the 1983 World Cup final where then India captain Kapil Dev ran to catch the ball of Sir Vivian Richards off the bowling of Madan Lal.

Uganda’s Frank Nsubuga took a one-handed stunner against Kenya in World Cup Challenge League at the Ugandan capital of Kampala.

It was another normal day at the tournament. Kenya were put to bat first and they scored 127 runs by losing four wickets at the end of 17.4 overs. At the crease were present Collins Obuya and Irfan Karim. At that time, medium pacer bowler Dinesh Maganlal was bowling and on his short and slower ball, Obuya looked to deposit it to the stands. But he miscued the shot and went towards the deep mid-wicket.

At first, it looked like the ball was going to land in no-man’s land. But to everyone’s surprise, the 41-year-old Nsubuga sprinted backwards from the mid-wicket and dived forward and caught it finally with one hand near the boundary line. A one-handed catch is usually not a planned one, but Nsubuga’s catch looked so seamless.

The catch reminded the cricket fraternity about the 1983 World Cup final where then India captain Kapil Dev ran to catch the ball of Sir Vivian Richards off the bowling of Madan Lal.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) also recognized the catch as being one of the finest seen at a cricket ground. Their official social media handles shared his catch’s video. You can watch it below:
