The best and greatest cricket catch ever discussion is always hotly debated. Over the years there have been a number of amazing catches that just boggle the mind – think Angelo Matthews, Adam Voges, Mayu Pasupati, Paul Collingwood, or this compilation of the 25 Best Catches Ever.
Now, courtesy of New Zealand’s domestic T20 competition, there is an acrobatic contender that wipes the floor with everything that has gone before.
Check the Greatest Catch contender out below:
Central Stags’ Bevan Small and Michael Mason combined to take the wicket of Northern Knights batsman Brad Wilson. 12th man Small dived skywards and backwards to claim a catch over the boundary rope. Still hanging in mid air, he had the time and composure to fling the ball to Mason who snaffled the catch.
The catch comes from the same crop as the aforementioned Matthews and Voges catches but surely this one takes the prize.
