In cricket, nothing is sweeter than skippers dismissing their counterparts off their own bowling. On Thursday, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) skipper, Aiden Markram did exactly that, but the manner in which he removed his dangerous-looking counterpart Nitish Rana led him to receive a lot of praise worldwide.

Aiden Markram took an exceptional catch

Having lost five out of eight matches in IPL 2023, SRH is playing a do-or-die situation before taking on Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in Match 47 of the ongoing edition at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. Their opposition KKR was not in the greatest form either, as they lost six out of nine games ahead of the ongoing match.

However, there were high expectations on the hosts of the game ahead of the season, and Aiden Markram knew he had to step up to inspire others to begin the turnaround.

And as the game progressed, Aiden Markram had no intention of disappointing the SRH fans. The second ball of the 11th over of KKR’s innings that he bowled was a slower one outside the off stump. Nitish Rana, batting on 41 off 30 balls, tried to slog it over deep mid-wicket but did not read the pace, leading him to find a huge top edge.

Aiden Markram called for the catch straightaway and sprinted backward for more than 20 yards to complete one of the best catches of the season, if not the best. Markram knew how important that breakthrough was, and before even players came to congratulate him, he, lying on the ground, screamed in joy to pull off an absolute stunner.

The Twitterati knew how brilliant Markram was, and they took little time to give him full credit.
