Alex Carey who is currently playing in the Sheffield Shield 2019, is pulled off an absolutely brilliant catch during the match against Queensland dismissing the opener Matt Renshaw on the score of 18 runs. Queensland batsman tried to flick it to the leg side. It was Wes Agar who was handling the bowling duties for the side. But Carey pulled off a stunner and dived to his right only to send the batsman packing. Needless to say that the netizens were in awe of the wicket-keeper batsman and were impressed by the catch.

Carey has been in the contingent of the Australian team with a series of blistering performances at the Sheffield Shield 2019. He even scored a quick century against Victoria which was quite an evidence that Carey can bat even in the longest form of the game. The video was shared by the official handle of the Cricket Australia. Twitterati even said that he should be Australia’s number one batsman in all formats.

A classic case of indomitable will power and commitment to excellence, blooming late but effectively proving a point that you can be out, but never down! Unless you let yourself be! The current bunch of youngsters have a lot to learn from Saha!!
