Pakistani former cricketer Shoaib Akhtar, known for his fast bowling and skills on the field has shared a video of five young boys playing some extraordinary cricket. 

In a tweet, the video that shows a bunch of boys playing for what it seems like cricket, to one's surprise, the little bowler instead of throwing the ball to the batsman, throws himself on the bat and then jumps onto the arm of the fielder on the first slip position.

This amusing video of the unconventional edged and caught at slips was shared with the caption 'what a catch' with multiple laughing emojis by the speedster. 

Speaking of brilliant catches, from gully cricket to the professional field, during Thursday night's match between Rajasthan Royal's Ben Stokes wore the throne for the 'perfect catch of the match' in a match against Chennai Super Kings. 

In the sixth over the CSK's innings, as Kedhar Jadhav hit the ball bowled by Jofra Archer, the all-rounder from England, Stokes put to display his athletic abilities as he jumped up to grab the ball. 


The same match found Kedar Jadhav taking a stunning catch to dismiss Rajasthan Royal's Rahul Tripathi. The incident happened in the ninth over which was Jadeja's second over of his bowling spell. On the fourth ball of the ninth over, Jadeja bowled a simple delivery on the line of off stump. Tripathi slashed the ball hard and the timing of the shot was perfectly executed. However, Jadhav, who was fielding at backward point, took a perfect jump and held on to the ball with one hand. He had a slight fumble but eventually went on to grab the ball as Tripathi walked back to the dugout. Even Jadeja was amused by what he had seen. 

Meanwhile, Chennai Super Kings pulled off a last-ball thriller defeating Rajasthan Royals by four wickets on Thursday, following which CSK skipper MS Dhoni added another feather in his cap by becoming the first captain to register 100 wins in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
