The Southern Superstars, batting first, were making a steady start, scoring 24 in the first four overs. However, in the last ball of the fourth over bowled by Isuru Udana, Theron pulled off something extraordinary on the field.

Rusty Theron’s unconventional catch: A unique fielding masterclass
Dilshan Munaweera, opening for the Superstars, sent a massive shot high in the air. Theron positioned himself under it but misjudged the line of the ball, resulting in the ball slipping through his hands. Nevertheless, in a surprising turn of events, Theron’s body position under the ball caused the ball to bounce back off his groin, enabling him to make the catch. Theron claimed the catch, and despite initial doubts about whether it had touched the ground, replays confirmed the grab to be clean.
