During the 20th match of the 11th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) between Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at Hyderabad, Chennai Super Kings’ Karn Sharma showcased a startling effort at the third-man boundary.

After Kane Williamson put Chennai Super Kings into bat, his bowlers did not let the visiting team get off to a flying start. However, a 112-run partnership between Suresh Raina and Ambati Rayudu saw Chennai Super Kings score 182-3 in their allotted quota of 20 overs.

Karn Sharma, who was fielding at third man, jumped in the air to grab a one-handed catch.

His foot had jumped over the line which forced him to throw the ball in a bid to save five runs. Karn Sharma have affected the dismissal but deserved full marks for trying. Watch the full video:
