After the Part I of the series of #IPLStunners, we take a look at the second part of some terrific catches from the past seasons of the Indian Premier League. While these catches are worthy of being played on a loop, we are quite sure there will be a few additions to this list after the completion of the 10th season of the illustrious T20 league.
IPL 8 – Dwayne Bravo
We start Part II with another catch of the season, this one of the 2015 edition. West Indies all-rounder Bravo’s one-handed screamer which involved a flawless jump timed to acute precision, was worthy of being adjudged the best catch. The victim of the wonder catch – Shane Watson.

IPL 3 – David Hussey
Very common nowadays, but Kolkata lad David Hussey’s superlative catch to dismiss Paul Collingwood was one of the earliest of the ‘throw-the-ball-back-inside’ kind. Displaying magnificent reflexes and presence of mind, Hussey sent the crowd into a frenzy as he held on to the catch after throwing it inside.
IPL 6 – Gurkeerat Singh Mann
While many considered Indian fielders not as lively as their foreign counterparts from Australia and South Africa, Gurkeerat chose to change the beliefs with a dazzling display of acrobatic catching to dismiss Ross Taylor of Pune Warrior. No wonder this remarkable one-handed effort to scoop the ball of the air left most of the cricketing fans in awe.

IPL 3 – Yogesh Nagar
Not in the playing XI, Delhi Daredevils’ substitute fielder Yogesh Nagar hogged the limelight for many days after he took a stunning catch to get rid of destructive Mumbai batsman Sanath Jayasuriya. Very difficult to put into words what Nagar did, we better take a look at it.
IPL 8 – Tim Southee and Karun Nair
After two relay catches in Part I, it is time for another. Kiwi pacer Southee found an able ally in Karun Nair to send back Kings XI batsman George Bailey. With 32 required of 7, KXIP had almost lost it but Bailey attempted a big heave over deep mid-wicket. The end result was the dismissal of the Australian, thanks to superb teamwork from Southee and Nair.

IPL 3 – AB de Villiers
When it comes to catches, how can Mr. 360 not feature in the list? An absolute peach of a fielder with a safe pair of hands, ABD left the commentators bewildered after catching the ball one handed while moving backward. To add more to his inhuman effort, he had misjudged the trajectory of the ball initially and moved forward. What followed next was absolutely unbelievable.
