Harry Brook may not have contributed much with the bat but the England international stunned everyone including the batter Mitchell Marsh with his stunning fielding effort during the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 encounter between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Delhi Capitals on Saturday. Marsh slammed a delivery hard during the 10th over of the DC innings and it felt like the ball will clear the boundary easily. However, Brook had other plans as he caught it in one hand and was able to throw it back just in time to save the boundary. There was a moment when fans thought that he will be able to complete the catch but he slipped slightly and the ball was just out of his reach.
