1. Jonty Rhodes- South Africa Vs India Durban 1997
Jonty Rhodes pulled off catches from the thin air many a time in his career, but it was one special occasion where he himself confessed in an interview as his best. When the world’s best fielder called it the ‘catch’ of his career, then it might just be the best. India met South Africa at Durban in February 1997 and Tendulkar led the side. He also opened the batting, and made stroke play look easy out in the middle, before the introduction of Lance Klusener. The burly all rounder bowled a wide delivery, and the little master unleashed a powerful cut. Jonty at point lept, parallel to the ground taking the catch one handed and making it look phenomenally easy, the world’s best fielder had just sent back the world’s best.
