WATCH: Shardul Thakur grabs a one-handed scorcher to dismiss Stuart Binny

Shardul Thakur took a scorcher-of-a-catch to dismiss Stuart Binny and outshine Shane Watson’s breathtaking century on Friday.

Chennai Super Kings won their first match in their new home Pune comfortably by 64 runs. But it was Watto’s 106 off 57 balls that set it up in the first place.

Riding high on Watson’s century and a healthy contribution from Suresh Raina, CSK managed to put up a daunting 205 for Rajasthan Royals to chase.

But the moment involving Thakur that we are talking about occurred in 16th over of 2nd innings. Royals were anyways looking down the barrel. It was Stuart Binny on strike, he tried to pull a short ball of Thakur, only to top edge it.

Thakur, who had just bowled the ball, had to make reasonable ground on his follow through to complete the catch with one hand. Suresh Raina and others went ballistic when the bowler grabbed the impossible looking catch.
