Cricket : Adam Voges fabulous catch

I never imagined there would be a cricket related post here on my blog but then again classic events cannot be ignored,right?

Australia played New Zealand today in a T-20 game.At a crucial juncture of the game(19th over to be precise),Adam Voges took a fabulous catch on the rope.

For all those who are cricketically challenged,if you cross the boundary line then its six runs and the catch is counted invalid.For it to be a valid catch the person/fielder has to be on the playing field.As you see in the video,Voges isn't in total control of his body and is leaning towards the boundary which would have made it six runs.So he throws the ball in the air and returns to the playing field to catch it back,thus making it totally valid. Its a fabulous catch and deserves to be counted for great plays.ESPN are you listening?
