During the 19th match of the ongoing Big Bash League (BBL), Melbourne Stars pair of Ben Dunk and Nathan Coulter-Nile joined hands to pull off a sensational catch to dismiss Melbourne Renegades batsman Shaun Marsh.
It all happened on the third delivery of the 15th over when Marsh smashed a googly from Stars leg-spinner Sandeep Lamichhane in between long-on and deep mid-wicket.
Dunk, who was fielding at long-on, ran to his left to catch the ball while being airborne and just before jumping over the boundary rope. However, his awareness saw him throwing the ball back in time to Coulter-Nile, who was running to his right from deep mid-wicket.
It was the miraculous catch on the boundary that kickstarted a batting collapse, and Renegades ended up on a modest 142 for 9 in 20 overs.
