Richie Berrington Stunning Catch: Scotland defeated Papua New Guinea (PNG) by 17 runs in the Group B match played yesterday in the T20 World Cup 2021. In this match played at the Al Emirates Cricket Ground, Richie Barrington performed brilliantly and played an important role in Scotland’s victory. Batting first, Barrington scored 70 runs in 49 balls for the Scotland team. Although more discussion than this destructive innings, Barrington is getting amazing in fielding. Barrington, who was fielding on point during PNG’s innings, took such a brilliant catch with one hand that even the ICC was convinced of him. The ICC shared the video of this catch on its Instagram handle and described this catch of Barrington as a masterclass of fielding.
Scottish bowler Josh Davey was hit by PNG batsman Simon Atai in the area of the point. The shot was so fast that everyone felt that the ball would hit the fielder and move towards the boundary. However, Richie Barrington, standing on point, had something else approved. He took this catch with one hand in a very spectacular manner. ICC also posted a video of this spectacular catch, writing, “Richie Barrington might not be satisfied even after impressing with his brilliant batting today. So he decided to give us a masterclass of fielding too.” You can also watch the video of this catch here.
