South African cricketer pulls off catch that shouldn't have even been possible
Take a bow, AB de Villiers. When you're done, take another one. You absolutely deserve it.
We've watched the catch he pulled off during Thursday's IPL match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad a good few times now. We've seen nothing to change our minds that it is one of the finest catches we've ever seen taken on a cricket field. You'll probably agree with us, too.
The Sunrisers were chasing down their opponent's total of 218 when Alex Hales attempted to smash Moeen Ali's delivery into the stands. He nearly did, too.
De Villiers leapt to a ridiculous height before plucking the ball from the sky with his right hand, returning to earth and landing millimetres from the boundary rope.
If you've resisted scrolling down for the video already, well done. If not, enjoy... you'll soon understand why it's being described as the 'catch of the century' by many that saw it.
