Substitute player’s wonder
Chasing the target, Sydney had lost their 2 important wickets in the form of Mathieu and Riley Russo for 0 only. Trent Boult took both the wickets. However, after this, the batsmen contributed little by little and brought the team to the threshold of victory. Sydney was troubled by the bowlers of Melbourne Stars, as well as Melbourne’s substitute fielder Couch surprised them with their amazing catch. First of all, he took the catch of Mathew in the very first over. Couch missed a straight catch at short fine leg, but after that he stopped the ball from falling down with his foot in a bicycle style and then caught it with one hand in 2 attempts.
OH MY GOD BRODY COUCH!

Green kept staring
Couch landed on the field as a substitute player in place of the injured Joe Burns. After this wonderful catch, he caught Chris Green in the air on the first ball of the 20th over. This was his second super catch of this match. Green felt that his shot would cross the boundary, but Couch was 20 yards inside the boundary at long off and he caught the catch in the air while running. Green was also surprised to see this catch and he returned to the pavilion after seeing the couch.
