    Any of Dyer "catching" Jones down the legside in the 1987/88 NZ v Aus series in Aussie?

    the best catch iv ever seen was in a club match i played in a few years ago... it was more luck than anything but astonishing nonetheless.

    It was a rank longhop a foot down leg and this guy middles a pull shot (and i mean middles it, probably would have been 1 bounce four, and the guy feilding at short leg, not more than 2 yards away sticks out his wrong hand (god knows how, it certainly wasnt reactions), and it stuck . He didnt even juggle it.
    Never seen anything like it! True story

    You see some pretty freaky catches in indoor cricket sometimes.
    I can't field, but I took a totally unintentional catch whilst fielding about 1.5 metres away from the bat (with the nets digging into my back) as our "spinner" produced an exceeding short, slow, straight break to their rather large shaved gorilla with a club who proceeded to smash it right at me. As I looked up expecting to see the next world, I discovered a) I wasn't dead, and b) I'd taken it cleanly, one handed with the hand I instinctively threw in front of my face (the other hand was engaged instinctively protecting points south). I wish somebody had taped it, it will no doubt remain my sole career highlight in the field.

    Of those, I'd rate Sinclair's as the best. Many of them are overrated; hell, I can imagine myself taking (or having taken) a few like that in the field.

    Best catching thread and no Jonty ?!

    Ps: A truely astonishing catch i saw was in the England-South Africa series - dont remember who was batting or bowling ( just a short clip) but Gibbs was at slips, grabs at the ball which falls through his hands and he kicks it up with his boot and grabs it the second time.
    Not only was it athletic, it was a blindingly fast piece of thinking. Probably one of the best cathes i've ever seen.

    Any footage of the West-Indian spectator with the newspaper taking a one-handed catch without any fuss? that's the best spectator catch I've ever seen.

    Strauss' Superman catch in last year's ashes was pretty good too. Collingwood's still the best, though, imo.

    Adam Dale's is surely the best of that lot.
