ILT20 – WATCH: David Wiese takes a stunning caught and bowled in Gulf Giants vs Dubai Capitals clash


Gulf Giants faced Dubai Capitals in match no. 8 of International League T20 (ILT20) at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium in Sharjah on Thursday (January 19).

The Capitals won the toss and chose to bowl first, but it was the Giants who came out on top as they posted a strong score of 181-6 in their 20 overs. James Vince contributed 76 runs to the team’s total, while Shimron Hetmyer played a cameo of 37 runs.

In reply, Dubai Capitals struggled in their run chase and were bundled out for just 80 in 14.3 overs. Joe Root (20) was the top scorer for the Capitals but couldn’t help his team overcome the Giants’ total.

Meanwhile, David Wiese (3 wickets) and Chris Jordan (2 wickets) proved instrumental in the Giants’ victory. Among those three dismissals by Wiese, one was a stunning caught and bowled that has been making rounds on social media.

On the last ball of the fifth over, Wiese bowled a fuller angled-in delivery to Capitals’ skipper Rovman Powell, which the right-handed batter tried to flick, but the ball got a leading edge of the bat and went straight in the air towards the right of the bowler.

Wiese coming up from a follow-through dived wide to his right, got his hands on the ball and plucked it to send Powell back to the pavilion for a duck. The teammates and the spectators well appreciated the 37-year-old pacer’s outstanding effort.

Here’s the video:

Gulf Giants ultimately secured a massive 101-run victory over the Dubai Capitals. Vince was named ‘Player of the Match’ for his impressive 76 runs (4 fours and four sixes), which helped set the foundation for the Giants’ victory.

With the win, Gulf Giants moved up to the top in the points table, while the loss pushed the Dubai Capitals further down to fourth position.
