Watch: Trent Boult’s Spectacular One-Handed Catch Dismisses Laurie Evans in ILT20 2024
New Zealand’s Trent Boult, one of the best fast bowlers in the world, showed what he is capable of, especially when he made a stunning catch. This time it came when he was playing for MI Emirates in a game against the Abu Dhabi Knight Riders in ILT20, 2024. Positioned at covers, he took a brilliant one-handed catch to dismiss Laurie Evans, who mistimed a fuller delivery from Fazalhaq Farooqi.
Though he struggled with the ball against the Knight Riders, having been able to pick up only one wicket in his four-over spell, Boult’s overall performance during this season is praiseworthy. Having taken the most wickets in four games at an average of 9.67, Boult’s stellar contributions has steered MI Emirates to emerge as the topmost team on the table

MI Emirates, having won three of the four matches so far in the ongoing Abu Dhabi T10 League, is still chasing. While 188 was a stiff target set by Abu Dhabi Knight Riders, it was still well within reach when one considers the nature of the wicket and boundary sizes. Joe Clarke and Michael Pepper gave a fly-power start to the MI cause but Farooqi’s dismissal of Clarke cost them momentum. Alishan Sharafu scored a good knock of 37 off 25 deliveries, setting the base for Andre Russell’s explosive unbeaten 46-run knock with 6 sixes.
An enthralling contest is on the cards between two teams who will be interested in capturing supremacy in the ILT20, 2024 edition, with MI Emirates requiring 189 runs for their fourth win in five matches after lost twice in the tournament.
