If you are a cricket lover, you have witnessed several fine catches in your lifetime. But this fascinating catch, takes the cake.
A ball boy, with amazing agility, has now grabbed headlines, for a stunner of a catch he took during the India-New Zealand match, currently underway at Wankhede.
Virat Kohli, on the way to his 31st ton, hit a six and while the Kiwi fielder could not get his hands on the ball, this alert ball boy from behind the ropes leapt to it and caught the ball, one-handed.
We will let this video do the talking.

The incident happened on the second delivery of the 25th over when Adam Milne bowled a short delivery to Indian skipper Virat Kohli.
Watch this beauty again:
Twitter had a ‘field day’, with many applauding the boy’s efforts and hoping that the cricketing board would perhaps sign him up.
