Catching is an aspect of cricket that requires attention and training to complete. Again and again we have seen the best fielders in the game drop setters. Some even make fun of mistakes while trying to catch the easy ones. Similarly, a 16-year-old cricketer became the center of attention when he made “the biggest drop catch ever” during a Village League game. Alex Ryder, who plays for Aldwick Cricket Club, made an incredible catch during the Village League game against Lingfield Cricket Club.
After failing a catch-and-bounce rule, Ryder inadvertently kicked the ball back into the air, taking a second catch when asked.
‘That’s so Village’ has shared this clip on its official Twitter handle.
The biggest dropped catch ever !?
