After Jofra’s stunning catch in the IPL last week for Rajasthan Royals, RGM takes a look at some of our favourite catches ever in cricket. Caught and bowled, two hands diving to the left at slip or hanging on tight at cow corner, a ripper in the field is enough to swing a game or, as is the case with one of our picks, win you Bermudan Sports Personality of the year
In the same vein of total commitment to the catch, Kieron Pollard leaves Glenn Maxwell and the crowd in awe with a mind-blowing snare on the boundary at the Manuka Oval in 2013.
Up next, the man, the myth and even ‘the fridge’ as described so poetically by David Lloyd. 36-year old Dwayne Leverock takes off in Bermuda’s World Cup match against India. Great touch for a big man.
2005 didn’t only have the greatest Ashes series, but it had this ripper from Andrew Strauss as he went totally horizontal to see off Adam Gilchrist at Trent Bridge.
Amazing fielding isn’t restricted to the players on the outfield, the ball still travels after it crosses the rope. No one knows this more than New Zealander, Andrew McCullouch, who takes a one handed stunner in the crowd to win $5000.
Where else to finish other than the fielding GOAT himself, Paul Collingwood. Primed and ready in his self-styled backward point position, he takes the ultimate grab to dismiss Matthew Hayden who is probably still scratching his head now.
