Can Kiwis Fly? Trent Boult Of KKR Proves They Can

The previous nine editions of the Indian Premier League have witnessed some spectacular fielding efforts.

The tenth edition of the cash-rich league witnessed its first gravity-defying fielding during the match between Gujarat Lions and Kolkata Knight Riders in Rajkot.

New Zealand's KKR pacer Trent Boult produced an acrobatic move to stop a six at the boundary ropes during the match.

WATCH:

The incident happened in the 14th over of the match when Gujarat Lions captain Suresh Raina launched Piyush Chawla over the mid-wicket region.

Boult, who was fielding in the deep, dived to his left, grabbed the ball in the air and threw back.

Though he missed out on a breathtaking catch, he certainly saved four runs for his team.
