One of the most remarkable catches in cricket history was the highlight of an emphatic 26-run BBL win by the Adelaide Strikers over the Melbourne Renegades.
The scorecard will show Dwayne Bravo was caught by Jake Weatherald off the bowling of Rashid Khan but that doesn't come close to capturing the moment.
Bravo's lofted off-drive was heading over the boundary rope when it was brilliantly caught by a sprinting Ben Laughlin.
The Strikers' seamer then had the presence of mind to back flick the ball 30m back into play as he fell over the boundary rope.
To the amazement of the 23,089 fans at Etihad Stadium, the ball hung in the air long enough for Weatherald to run around and take a superb diving catch.
