Being caught is actually the most common method of being dismissed – whether it is a test match, one day international or a Twenty20 fixture. For cricket novices, a batsman would be deemed to be caught out if a fielding player for the opposing team catches the ball directly off the bat without the ball touching the ground first.
As there are various different formats of the sport a bet on a cricket match gives a huge selection to choose from. An example of a bet where a catch was included could be method of next dismissal or first wicket dismissal.
Bowlers do not just attempt to hit the stumps of the batting player to get them out and a popular tactic is to encourage the batter to play a shot that will end up being caught by a fielding player. With fast bowlers this can see the introduction of bouncers but slower spin bowlers can manipulate the ball to such a degree that it is hard for the batting player to predict how the ball will bounce. This can end up with the wicket-keeper taking the catch for the dismissal.
A catch could also be included in a special multi-bet in which a particular player must hit a six, take a wicket and take a catch, for example. These bets can be especially popular when it comes to all rounders.
Ajinkya Rahane became the first non-wicketkeeper to take more than seven catches in a single test match against Sri Lanka in 2015. The Indian fielder caught three in the first innings and followed it up with five more in the second.
