Chris Jordan who is playing his maiden BBL season has taken one of the best catches taken in the BBL so far. This was absolutely stunning from the English fast bowler. He dismissed his English team mate Chris Jordan. Billings had to move out after this.
Billings hit this ball right back at the medium pacer and Jordan had absolutely no time in reacting to this one. The ball came back like a thunder bolt at him and he just somehow clutched this ball. The commentators just could not believe how Jordan took this catch.
Chris Jordan signed a contract with Adelaide Strikers for this year’s BBL edition. He is one of the best death over bowlers in England. He can bowl with altering line and lengths and in T20 this is one tactic that makes you safe from getting a lot of boundaries. On top of all Jordan can bowl yorkers as well. In any form of cricket if a bowler can bowl yorkers at a regular interval then certainly he is no match to any other who cannot despite lacking the pace. Yorkers are this much lethal and important in world cricket.
This was not a yorker but a fuller length ball. It hit the turf right near Billings who has been in exceptional form with the bat. Billings did middle this one but the only risk he took was hitting it back and near to the bowler. Billings must have been sure that this one will get him some runs but his national team mate had some other plans. Jordan put his left hand out and this one stuck into it. After a few micro seconds the ball did pop out of the hand of Jordan but by that time he was in control of his body position and his mind reacted immediately and he grabbed the ball with both of his hands. This was certainly one of the remarkable bowler back catches.
Adelaide Strikers are good in the field. They have names like Pollard who is an expert in catching the ball on any part of the ground. He is known for his catches in the deep and there is no doubt that apart from Pollard there is hardly any other hand who could take such catches. He is a maestro when it comes to taking impossible catches in the deep. The IPL and other T20 leagues are full of his catches and they are definitely classics of this T20 format. Jordan himself is a brilliant fielder as well.
