A match between Ireland and Australia was played in the T20 World Cup 2022 today. During this, Irish bowler Barry McCarthy performed such a fielding performance that everyone was surprised to see.
Many times fielders do such a kind of fielding that leaves spectators surprised. Same happened today as well when Barry McCarthy stopped the ball at the boundary as if it was flying. He also got hurt during this fielding but he also saved important runs for his team.
Australia batted first in this match. In the 15th over of the match, Marcus Stoinis played a shot towards long-on. The ball went straight into the air towards the boundary and it looked like it was definitely going to be a six. But then McCarthy jumped hard and caught the ball in the air and threw it inside while he fell outside the boundary rope.
After this fielding, he also suffered a back injury and immediately the physio helped him by reaching the field but his effort earned him praise. Not only the fans but his fellow players and commentators also applauded his fielding. The ICC has also shared the video of this incident on its official Instagram account.
