Top 10 Catches of IPL 2022
1.Evin Lewis (LSG vs KKR, Match 66)
Evin Lewis takes the top spot with his stunning catch in the match between LSG and KKR. With just three runs needed off two balls, Rinku Singh miscued a drive, but it seemed the ball would land safely. However, Lewis ran nearly 30 yards from the ropes, slid, and pulled out his left hand to grab a stunner inches off the ground.
2. Harpreet Brar (PBKS vs RCB, Match 60)
Harpreet Brar took a well-judged catch on the boundary against the Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Brabourne Stadium to send back Wanindu Hasaranga. Hasaranga went for a slog sweep against Rahul Chahar and smashed the ball toward deep midwicket. Brar took the catch over his head, and as he was falling over, he flicked the ball into the air before going over the ropes. He regathered himself and completed the catch.
3.Tim Southee (PBKS vs KKR, Match 8)
In match 8 of IPL 2022 at the Wankhede Stadium, Tim Southee ran all the way from long-off to mid-on and then dived to take a skier from Kagiso Rabada. Rabada completely miscued an off-cutter from Andre Russell, but Southee never lost sight of the ball and completed a magnificent catch.
4.Kuldeep Yadav (DC vs KKR, Match 19)
Delhi Capitals’ left-arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav took a superb running catch off his own bowling to dismiss the Kolkata Knight Riders’ Umesh Yadav in Match 19 of IPL 2022 at the Brabourne Stadium. Umesh slogged one across the line and skied the spinner, and as the ball came down, Yadav dived a full stretch to complete the catch.
5.Liam Livingstone (PBKS vs CSK, Match 11)
Punjab’s batting all-rounder Liam Livingstone took an excellent return catch to dismiss Dwayne Bravo at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. Bravo chipped a leg break uppishly, but Livingstone ran towards his left and flung himself to pull off a one-handed stunner.
6.Rahul Tripathi (GT vs SRH, Match 21)
In the match between GT and SRH, Bhuvneshwar Kumar bowled a ‘hit me’ ball outside off, which Shubman Gill accepted and smacked. However, it seemed the ball would race past cover, but Rahul Tripathi dived to his left, put out his hand, and the ball stuck.
7.Glenn Maxwell (GT vs RCB, Match 67)
In Match 67 of IPL 2022 between Gujarat and Bangalore at the Wankhede Stadium, Glenn Maxwell took a one-handed screamer at slip to end Shubman Gill’s stay. Gill had a poke at a length ball from Josh Hazlewood outside off and got a thick edge. Maxwell almost nonchalantly dived to his right and came up with the ball stuck in his hand.
8.Shubman Gill (LSG vs GT, Match 4)
Shubman Gill’s terrific running catch to send back LSG’s Evin Lewis in the match between LSG and GT was truly amazing.

He put in a full-length dive and took a magnificent grab.
9.Jos Buttler (PBKS vs RR, Match 52)
In match number 52 of IPL 2022, Buttler took a smart one-handed catch to dismiss Punjab Kings opener Shikhar Dhawan. The left-hander chipped down the track to Ravichandran Ashwin and tried to loft him over mid-off. He did not get enough elevation, though. Buttler tracked back and, just when it seemed the ball was heading over him, he leapt and pulled off a one-handed stunner.
