Howzat for an all-time incredible cricket catch?
A KCSA Calicut versus KPA 123 cricket match in in the Kerala Premier League was the setting for the Catch of the Year. KCSA batsman K. Abhilash came unstuck courtesy of a one-in-a-million catch by wicket-keeper Muhammad Mammu.
Watch what happened.
We have a winner.
This is the greatest wicket-keeper catch of all-time!

Is he a wicket-keeper or is he a backstop? Either way, if it hadn’t been caught on camera, we’d have had a hard time believing it.
The clip, originally shared by @kreedajagat, has had viewers completely stumped.
One of the best things I’ve seen https://t.co/IYjNyL3h6D

Batters have innovative shots.
Bowlers have innovative balls.
Now catching has new ways too! https://t.co/5Qxe76Qw7A

Who needs Dwayne Leverock? Pure unadulterated genius here by the keeper. https://t.co/uQijl0huhA

It even entertained Sam Billings, who knows a thing or two about wicket-keeping.

While we’re all oohing and aahing over the catch, let’s spare a thought for Abhilash.
The unluckiest batsman
