In the SRH vs KKR match in the IPL 2023, Aiden Markram makes a spectacular catch off his own bowling to get rid of Nitish Rana. Thursday during the Indian Premier League (IPL) match against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Sunrisers Hyderabad captain Aiden Markram demonstrated his exceptional fielding abilities by taking a superb catch off his own bowling.
The incident happened in the 12th over of the Kolkata innings at the Hyderabad-based Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, where the South African dismissed his Knight Riders counterpart Nitish Rana for 42 to end the reliable fourth-wicket partnership.
Rana received a thick top edge while attempting a slog-sweep with the ball heading towards the open mid-on area. Rana and Rinku Singh had helped Kolkata recover from a shaky start by putting on a 61-run partnership.
During his third over of bowling, Aiden Markram ultimately ran the other way and made one of the best catches of the year so far.

In contrast, Kolkata posted 171/9 after deciding to bat in what is thought to be a crucial match for both teams to remain in contention for the playoffs. In addition to Abdul Samad’s excellent catch at deep midwicket, Rinku led the Knight Riders in scoring with a 35-ball 46. He missed out on reaching his third half-century of the year after being dismissed off T Natarajan’s bowling.
Overall, Aiden Markram’s catch was the game’s high point and provided the direction for the remainder of the innings. Rana was in excellent form and appeared poised for a big score, so it turned out to be a game-changer.
The catch, however, changed the game’s momentum in SRH’s favour and enabled them to keep KKR to a manageable total. With both teams working hard to win, the game was a fantastic demonstration of cricketing prowess.
