In a thrilling last-over finish to the T20 World Cup 2024 clash between England and South Africa, Aiden Markram grabbed a sensational match-winning catch to dismiss Harry Brook, guiding his team to victory. The gripping encounter took place on Friday evening at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium in Gros Islet, St Lucia.

Aiden Markram sprints 18 metres to pull off a blinder

England’s victory hopes hung by a thread as they required 14 runs from the final over bowled by South Africa’s fiery pacer, Anrich Nortje. Brook, the in-form batter, was on strike, and the momentum seemed to be with England. However, a sensational catch by Markram swung the match decisively in South Africa’s favour.

Brook mistimed a full delivery from Nortje, attempting a lofted shot over mid-off. The ball ballooned high into the air, but Markram, stationed at backward point, wasn’t giving up. In a breathtaking display of athleticism, he sprinted back 18 meters, judged the trajectory perfectly, and leaped to snag the catch over his shoulder, ensuring the ball wouldn’t bounce away for a boundary.
