Adam Lyth and Aaron Finch produce stunning catch in NatWest T20 Blast match between Lancashire and Yorkshire
Cricket fans probably thought they had seen the catch of the year when Chris Jordan pulled off a stunner Down Under in January, but this combined effort in the NatWest T20 Blast from Yorkshire duo Aaron Finch and Adam Lyth is something else.
Lancashire batsman Tom Smith can feel himself pretty hard done by to have been dismissed for 55 this evening.
When it looked certain his big hit down the ground had beaten the field and gone for six, Yorkshire’s Lyth pulled off this astonishing piece of fielding to send him back to the pavilion.
Running backwards towards the boundary, Lyth made an attempt at a catch but realising he was about to fall over the rope, palmed the ball back to Finch and the Australian was alert enough to hold on.
It was such a staggeringly good piece of fielding, the NatWest T20 Blast Twitter account even suggested Lyth should wear a cape and underpants when he next takes to a cricket pitch.
