VIDEO: Ben Laughlin, Jake Weatherald combine to produce ‘catch of the decade’


During a match between Adelaide Strikers and Melbourne Renegades in the ongoing Big Bash League (BBL), fans got to witness a breathtaking catch. Ben Laughlin and Jake Weatherald combined to take what is now called the “catch of the decade”.

In the 16th over of Renegades, who were chasing 174 for a win, Dwayne Bravo was facing Rashid Khan. Bravo needed to do something extraordinary to win the game for his side but Laughlin and Weatherald had other ideas.

When Bravo hit Rashid over the covers for a big shot, it looked like clearing the boundary. But, Laughlin sprinted back to long-off and took a good running catch. His momentum carried him closer to the boundary and realising that he will cross it, he threw the ball back into the field. He threw it close to 30 metres, where Weatherald dived backwards and completed the catch.

Definitely, it is the catch you’ll love to see in repeat mode.
