Yes, it’s all about the Ashes and the joy of de-smugging the Aussies, but there is other cricket going on as well. For example last night, Yorkshire and Leicestershire were playing in the Friends Life Twenty20.
The match was a bit crap to be honest, but it did provide us with one of the most-breathtaking catches we’ve ever seen outside of Peter Crouch somehow snaring Abbey Clancy. Gary Ballance of Yorkshire somehow scrambled to get on the end of a crappy slog from Josh Cobb that the ball from Jack Brooks probably didn’t deserve.
Over the shoulder. And one handed. And after more running that a cricketer should ever have to do. Impressive stuff. Well done sir – tuck in to all the tea-time cucumber sandwiches you want by way of reward for this moment of GIF-tastic brilliance.
