Punjab Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad are facing each other at Wankhede stadium in the last league match of the ongoing season of Indian Premier League. SRH won the toss and elected to bat first. A brilliant catch by Liam Livingstone caught the attention of cricket fans all over the world.
Livingstone is one of best fielders in the world currently. He showed it once again why he is a 3-D player. In the 11th over of the game, Harpreet Brar bowled a full flighted delivery. As soon as Abhishek Sharma saw the flight, he slogged the ball towards long-on. The ball was travelling at a good height.
However, Livingstone who was standing a long-on took a brilliant catch to end this innings of Abhishek. Liam Livingstone timed his jump perfectly to take the catch. He stretched his both hands in the air and brought them together at the correct time. Liam also managed his balance near the boundary ropes to finish the catch. It was a great athletic effort from Livingstone. Everyone in the stadium appreciated this brilliant effort of Liam.

I wanted to play my natural game- Abhishek Sharma
After electing to bat first , Sunrisers Hyderabad didn’t get a good start. They lost the early wicket of Priyam Garg. Rahul Tripathi too couldn’t get his timing right and scored just 20 runs in 18 balls. Abhishek Sharma continued his good form and played a good knock of 43 runs. In the end, Romario Shephard helped SRH post a total of 157 Runs.
Abhishek Sharma in mid match interview said “We were discussing the shot that I played ( with Tom Moody), have got out many times playing it, I was looking to go back over the bowler’s head, would have been a safe shot had I done so. I wanted to play my natural game and was looking to make most of the loose balls.”
