1. Trent Boult
“This is the Vivo perfect catch of the season!” hollered the commentator. “Trent Boult, what are you doing? That is the best catch we have ever seen in the IPL when you think of the enormity of the situation.”
These were the words that were on all our mouths as Trent Boult pulled off a stunner to dismiss Virat Kohli. Making the catch all the better was the fact that Boult was just centimetres from the boundary rope, stopping his fall short to cleanly catch the ball much to the disbelief of Kohli.

2. Dwayne Bravo
The West Indian fast bowler pulled off a magnificent catch of his own bowling in the first qualifier against the Sunrisers Hyderabad. The pace and angle with which the ball came at him made the effort all the more marvellous.
Playing against his former side Kolkata Knight Riders, Shakib took a blinder off his own bowling to scalp Chris Lynn’s wicket. Diving to his left, the spinner managed to hold onto the ball to send Chris Lynn back to the hut.
4. Virat Kohli
RCB’s captain had a fantastic tournament not just with the bat but in the field as well. His amazing fitness was on display against KKR when he ran a long distance to hold onto a diving effort to dismiss KKR captain Dinesh Karthik.
5. Shardul Thakur
This was the year of caught and bowled efforts. Right up with Bravo’s catch is Thakur’s. A short ball to Binny was mistimed in Thakur’s direction who caught it cleanly in the air.
6. Manish Pandey
Nothing gets better than diving efforts than this one. SRH’s new boy Pandey shocked the crowd after he came running from the boundary to catch a hit off Andre Russell in what turned out to be a crucial wicket for his side.
7. Hardik Pandya
Glen Maxwell was left in awe after Mumbai Indians all-rounder Hardik Pandya pulled out a stunner to send him back to the pavilion for just 13.
