Cricket catch New Zealand Bevan SmallA substitute cricket player, Bevan Small, 19, was a surprise hero last week when he made an amazing play for New Zealand by simultaneously jumping over the boundary line and throwing the ball back to his teammate.

The ball looked to have cleared the boundary but Small soared into the air back over the boundary rope and, still airborne, flicked the ball into the hands of teammate Michael Mason, saving six in the process.

Almost half a million people have so far viewed the clip since it was posted on YouTube, with some hailing it as one of the greatest catches ever.

Enjoy what, for most of you, will be the only cricket catch you’ll ever see — a great one by a little known player.
