    Narayan Jagadeesan made a spectacular catch to dismiss Wriddhiman Saha during the Gujarat Titans vs Kolkata Knight Riders match in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023. The catch came in the fifth over bowled by Sunil Narine, as Saha went for a sweep and the ball went high in the air. Jagadeesan went back from mid-wicket and took it over his shoulder, dismissing Saha for run-a-ball 17. This catch is similar to what Kapil Dev did at the 1983 World Cup final to dismiss Sir Viv Richards.

    Earlier, Gujarat Titans won the toss and elected to bat first. Afghan spinner Rashid Khan was leading the home team in place of regular skipper Hardik Pandya, who was unwell and missed the game. GT made one forced change, bringing in Vijay Shankar in place of regular skipper Hardik. KKR made two changes with Lockie Ferguson and N Jagadeesan coming in for Tim Southee and Mandeep Singh.

    GT vs KKR Playing XIs were: Gujarat Titans: Shubman Gill, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Sai Sudharsan, Vijay Shankar, David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan (c) Alzarri Joseph, Josh Little, Yash Dayal, Mohammed Shami. Kolkata Knight Riders: Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), Nitish Rana (c), N Jagadeesan, Rinku Singh, Andre Russell, Shardul Thakur, Sunil Narine, Lockie Ferguson, Umesh Yadav, Suyash Sharma, Varun Chakravart.

    India captain Kapil Dev’s catch at the 1983 World Cup final to dismiss Sir Viv Richards was similar to Jagadeesan’s catch. That day, Richards hooked medium-pacer Madan Lal but mistimed it only for the ball to propel towards the mid-wicket fence. Dev, who was at the mid-wicket sprinted backwards for of a few yards to grab the ball. India won the World Cup for the first time that day.
