Natwest T20 blast is indeed a revolution in English cricketing history. England is known for having the most traditional fan base in the world of cricket who are attracted more towards test matches rather than limited overs cricket like ODIs and T20Is. But this franchise based T20 league has drawn the crowd like never before.
In this tournament there are total 18 teams who are competing against each other for the coveted title. There are two groups, North group and South group. Each group has 9 teams each. The tournament is now in the business end and each and every team is fighting hard to cement their quarter final spot.
New Zealand all-rounder James Neesham who plays for Kent in this tournament was up against Somerset with his side languishing at the bottom of the points table. They are almost out of the tournament but still fighting hard to have some miraculous chance. Today it was a special moment for Neesham as he caught Somerset opener Steve Davis and it was one of the greatest catches.
Neesham was fielding at mid-wicket when his New Zealand teammate fast bowler Adam Milne was bowling to Davis. Davis was all guns blazing and was trying to attack every ball. Neesham caught Davis’ flick of wrist by jumping in the air full stretched in his right hand. A single handed stunner who stunned the whole stadium as well as the batsman.
Watch the breath taking superb flying catch by Neesham below:
