Sports are renowned for their capacity to unite people and put a smile on their spectators’ faces.
A remarkable performance by your favourite athlete or team may turn a bad day into a good one. Jonny Bairstow made a fantastic catch in the deep during the second T20 International (T20I) against England and South Africa on Thursday in Cardiff, giving a spectator with special needs cause to applaud. The Barmy Army posted a video of the ecstatic fan after Bairstow successfully completes the catch.
The video’s description said, “Cricket is wonderful, watch at the lad celebrating.”
Reeza Hendricks was hit by the fine-leg catch and lost for a 32-ball 53.
However, England’s failure to reach their goal of 208 meant that the game did not conclude on a positive note for their supporters.
Rilee Rossouw’s undefeated 96 and Hendricks’ fifty propelled South Africa to a total of 207/3.
In their pursuit, Tabraiz Shamsi & Andile Phehlukwayo each claimed three wickets as England was bowled out for 149.
Jonny Bairstow led England in scoring with a 21-ball 30, but the hosts’ batting display left them feeling unsatisfied.
South Africa evened the three-match series with the 58-run victory.
South Africa’s response to England’s massive 234/6 total in the first T20I was only 193/8.
In Southampton, the third T20I will be contested on Sunday.
The ODI series between both the two countries that came before the T20Is resulted in a 1-1 tie, with the third game being cancelled due to inclement weather.
