It seems like the Indian Premier League fans at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru continued to witness mind-boggling one-handed catches this season. First, we had New Zealand pacer Trent Boult’s unbelievable catch that stunned Virat Kohli, followed by Rashid Khan’s magnificent take to dismiss Colin de Grandhomme in the clash between Royal Challengers Bangalore and SunRisers Hyderabad on Thursday, and now, we’ve got another incredible catch from AB de Villiers.
While the former South Africa skipper boasts a collection of spectacular catches in the history of cricket, the ‘Superman’ gave us another example of the same when the RCB took on Sunrisers Hyderabad in the ongoing Indian Premier League.
The Royal Challengers Bangalore player was fielding on the rope at deep mid-wicket. So much so incredible that while Hyderabad batsman Alex Hales has hit a big shot and seemed to have cleared the boundary, much to the surprise of thousands present at the stadium, De Villiers brought down the roof with a mind-boggling catch, that too with just one hand.
The South African ‘Superman’ leaped in the air and grabbed the ball one-handed to complete one of the most spectacular catches in the history of cricket. See the catch.

And, interestingly, after witnessing the ‘Superman’ phenomenal catch, tweeple couldn’t remain calm anymore and resulted in giving birth to hilarious memes. Take a look at how people reacted to the incredible catch.

AB De Villiers’ incredible abilities as a sportsman have seen him register himself as one of South Africa’s all-time greats. Be it innovative shots, bone-shattering dives, monstrous sixes and jaw-dropping catches, it seems there isn’t anything this man cannot do.
