In a 2014 Georgie Pie Super Smash Twenty20 match between Central Stags and Northern Knights, New Zealand fast bowler Adam Milne, representing the Stags, pulled this catch off to dismiss Anton Devcich off the bowling of left-arm spinner Ajaz Patel.
At first glance, you would assume that the ball would have hit the ground and that there is no possible way that it could be declared out.
It isn’t (although arguable), and that is what makes it special and one of the most incredible catches in Cricket's history. Getting a hand to the ball is in itself an appreciable effort and then a full stretch to pull this off? Surely, the 22-year-old deserves to be given the benefit of the doubt.
Patel should consider himself fortunate to have that wicket credited to him, thanks to the incredible piece of athleticism from the lanky fast bowler.
Milne has represented his country in 7 One Day Internationals (ODIs) and 6 Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) and is one of Kiwis’ most promising speedsters. Although injuries have curtailed his rise in the international arena, that he made his international debut way back in 2010 as a teen shows how highly the selectors rate him. The right arm quick is still very much in the mix, though.
