A video posted by Wisden shows an astounding catch taken during a cricket game.
As per reports, the video was shot somewhere in Kerala and shows a group of locals engaging in a friendly game of cricket. Watch the video here:
The best catch you'll see today 👀pic.twitter.com/KNKsvenV8y— Wisden (@WisdenCricket) July 28, 2019
In the video, two teams can be seen competing against each other in a clearing complete with a cricket pitch and coconut trees. The bowler makes his delivery and the batsman catches it full with his bat and smashes it far and high. Just when it seems that the ball will cross the boundary, however, one alert fielder steps up to attempt the catch. Within seconds, as the ball is about to cross the boundary, the player himself steps up ofd the boundary line to prevent the ball from touching the ground - he pushes the ball which is later caught by another teammate. The epic catch garnered multiple likes and tweets.
However, some of them chose to disagree and posted other examples which they found to be better:
The above video shows a similar catch. But here, the player directly throws himself onto the ground which is apparently flooded.
