Over the years fans have witnessed a lot of tag-team catches at the boundary line especially in the shortest format of the game, but one between Chris Jordan and Jason Roy during the ongoing 5th and the final T20I between India and England steals the show. The reaction and presence of mind from Jordan were from another world.
In the 14th over of the first innings bowled by Adil Rashid, the Indian fiery batsman, Suryakumar Yadav came down the track and macked the ball toward mid-wicket trying to hit a six. However, Jordan came steaming down from long-on towards mid-wicket while the ball was going away from him with every passing second. He then puts his hand out and managed to take the catch with his one-hand.
But then Chris Jordan realized he was overstepping the ropes and decided to pass it to Jason Roy who was nearby. Roy gleefully took one of the easiest catches of his life, but he would know it was made possible because of the brilliant effort of Jordan. Adil Rashid was the bowler who picked up the crucial wicket of Suryakumar Yadav.
The incident took place in the 14th over of the match when the Indian skipper, Virat Kohli and SKY were going great guns. Here is the video of the dismissal:

Suryakumar Yadav played another quickfire knock of 17-ball 32 and did not allow the run rate to dip after Rohit Sharma perished, who had amassed 64 of just 34 balls.
Earlier, in the game, the English skipper, Eoin Morgan had won his third consecutive toss and again decided to bowl first. While England made no changes to their squad, Kohli made one change as KL Rahul made way for T Natarajan.
