India vs England: Remarkable outfield catch steals show in Twenty20 decider

England cricketers Chris Jordan and Jason Roy combined in Ahmedabad to add another entry to the list of wonderful boundary catches.
It was in a losing cause in the fifth and deciding Twenty20 international against India, but gave the touring side something to smile about. Or in Roys case, laugh.

Indian batsman Suryakumar Yadav clouted one towards deep mid-wicket and Jordan, racing around the boundary, reached out with one hand to make the catch then toss it away before he tread on the rope.

Waiting was Roy, who pouched the easiest catch he will ever take in international cricket and promptly burst out laughing.

The catch is credited to Roy in the official scorecard while Jordans wonderful piece of athleticism for the assist doesn't get a mention in one of crickets oddities. Legspinner Adil Rashid got the wicket.
