There can be no doubt - Ben Stokes has convincingly proved his worth in the IPL, with the bat, with the ball, and now in the field.
Hit the video above to see Stokes' amazing catch on the boundary for Rising Pune Supergiant in their seven-run defeat to Delhi Daredevils.
Off the penultimate delivery of the Delhi innings, Mohammed Shami looked to launch Jaydev Unadkat over cow corner for six, but lurking in the deep was Stokes.
The England allrounder first plucks the ball out of the air one-handed with a diving grab over the boundary, then throws the ball up in the air to take the return catch once back inside the ropes - all the while making it look far too easy.
Stokes also affected a run-out in the game, took two wickets for 31 runs and smashed 33 off 25 balls but it still wasn't to be enough, as Pune slipped to a slender defeat.
