Catch #22

Inimitable wicket-keeper batsman Adam Gilchrist overtook another legendary 'keeper Ian Healy as the highest wicket-taker behind the wicket.

But it was not his catches that made the biggest impact in that match.

There were three instances when batsmen were dismissed off a no-ball. Two times Aussies paid some prices, and once the Indians. One of the commentators explained the real catch of the situation. The intriguing catch was this: it so seemed, that
to take a wicket, the bowler needed to bowl a no-ball. But then since it's a no-ball, he will not be getting any wicket!
Now, some catch it was. That catch-22!
