In what can only be described as an exhibition of sheer athleticism, Saint Lucia Kings' all-rounder, Roston Chase produced a spectacular fielding effort during the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2023 clash against Guyana Amazon Warriors.

Roston Chase's catch sent Chandrapaul Hemraj packing for 4

Though rain played spoilsport, it was Chase's stunning catch that stole the spotlight and became the talking point of the day.

Having opted to bowl first after winning the toss, the Kings saw their decision vindicated when Chris Sole dismissed Chandrapaul Hemraj in the third over. But more than Sole's delivery, it was Chase's incredible effort on the field that grabbed all the headlines.

Striving for an early breakthrough, Sole pitched a short delivery. Hemraj, trying to capitalize, mistimed a pull shot. What followed was a display of Chase's impeccable fielding instincts and agility.

Positioned at long-on, he hurriedly covered the ground, clearly misjudging the trajectory of the ball at first. But, recovering in time, he outstretched his hand, gripping the ball firmly, even as he lost his balance and skidded on the field. Hemraj, perhaps as stunned as the spectators, had to depart for just 4.

However, Guyana Amazon Warriors' innings saw a resurgence with Hemraj's opening partner, Saim Ayub, launching a counter-attack. He blazed away, hammering a sequence of boundaries against Sole.

Azam Khan soon joined the party, meting out similar treatment to Alzarri Joseph. Yet, in the subsequent over, his adventurous stint was cut short by Jair McAllister, after making a quickfire 21 from just 11 balls.

But the skies soon opened up and brought the game to a halt. The relentless rain forced a revision, reducing the match to a five-over affair. The Kings, set a revised target of 59, however, never got the chance to chase, as the rain refused to let up, leading to a no-result.
