Chris Jordan Pulls Off The Most Audacious Fielding For England
England all rounder Chris Jordan produced the moment of the series as his ridiculous piece of fielding helped remove India batsman Suryakumar Yadav in the T20 decider.
It's been a fascinating T20 series between India and England, with the two best sides in the short format of the game sharing two wins-a-piece.
The sides went into the decider none the wiser at who might win, with England winning the toss and choosing to field, as both captains had done throughout.
India got off to an incredible start with Rohit Sharma and captain Virat Kohli putting on 94 for the first wicket in just 8.6 overs, before Sharma was bowled by Ben Stokes.
Yadav then came in and had made 32 off 17 balls, to take the hosts to 143 off 13.1 overs. The batsman played it to wide long on and might have thought he'd hit another boundary.
All rounder Jordan arrived with a great run to take the catch but he had to run so quickly just to get there his momentum was sure to take him over the boundary but he calmly through the ball to Jason Roy to complete the catch.
WOW! UNBELIEVABLE! :scream:- Sky Sports Cricket (@SkyCricket) March 20, 2021
Take a bow, Chris Jordan! :bow:
It goes down as Roy's catch but CJ did most of the work!

Jason Roy's catch will go down as one of T20's finest catches ever. And he did NOTHING!- Kevin Pietersen (@KP24) March 20, 2021
One of the great boundary-relay catches by Chris Jordan there: full sprint, one-handed, gentle lob to Jason Roy who's laughing at the ridiculousness of it all.- Lawrence Booth (@the_topspin) March 20, 2021
Jordan had gone for 29 off his first two overs of bowling as Eoin Morgan's unchanged team were put under pressure from all the Indian batsman.
Even if they go on to lose the series England, and specifically Jordan, will have produced one of the most memorable moments in T20 history!
