Trent Boult fielding like swimmer:
Mumbai Indians star bowler Trent Boult impressed with bowling again, 3 wickets off 28 runs and one run-out. But he is trending for other reasons. In the second inning, Warner was having a good time on strike. Krunal Pandya was called to bowl the fifth over. Boult was fielding on mid-on when Warner was batting. Warner had a powerful shot on mid-on, which made Boult chase the ball.
It was powerful but within reach on any fielder. Boult is one of the fastest on the ground with bowling and running. But he struggled to get and stop the boundary. He lost his balance while chasing, waving his legs like he is catching the ball in the swimming pool. In the end, when everyone thought he is going to stop the ball, he slipped and that was four runs for Warner.
