But Kolkata Knight Riders' pacer Nathan Coulter-Nile, who took a brilliant catch against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Eliminator on Wednesday (May 17), has sent a clear message to fans that there's still a lot of action remaining even in the last stages of the league.

The Australian pacer impressed not only with his match-winning bowling effort for Kolkata, but was also applauded for the superb follow-through catch during the match.

Coulter-Nile pouched a stupendous return catch, a one-handed blinder, of his own bowling to dismiss Chris Jordan of the Sunrisers Hyderabad at M Chinnaswamy Stadium.

He took the catch diving towards his left in the penultimate of the innings to get rid of Jordan for golden duck.

Watch the stunning catch and a few images of the same, here:

At at time when fans have already started figuring out best catches, best sixes and best wickets in the cash-rich league, Coulter-Nile's effort has sent out clear a message that they should expect for more of these for there are still two more games remaining.

Kolkata Knight Riders will lock horns with Mumbai Indians on Friday (May 19) in the second qualifier and winner among the two will face Rising Pune Supergiant in the final on Sunday (May 21) in Hyderabad.
