The ball goes off the splice towards long on. Shreyas Iyer is stationed over there and he does take the catch. Axar Patel though comes running across to his left from deep mid-wicket and breezes past Shreyas Iyer. They do not collide but that makes Iyer lose his balance. Good presence of mind is shown by Shreyas though. He immediately tosses the ball up, crosses the rope and then returns to grab it back.
