The best fielding I’ve ever seen was when Australia star Ashton Agar left England stunned with a stunning grab to stop a six in the English summer of 2019.
It was a moment that will live long in the memory of cricket fans around the world. In the second innings of the first Test match between England and Australia at Edgbaston, Ashton Agar produced a moment of brilliance that left the English batsmen and spectators in awe.
With England needing just one run to win the match, the batsman, Jos Buttler, hit a shot high into the air towards the boundary. It looked certain to be a six, but Agar had other ideas. He leapt into the air and, with one hand, plucked the ball out of the sky and threw it back into the field of play.
The crowd erupted in applause and the commentators were left speechless. It was a moment of pure brilliance from Agar, and one that will live long in the memory of cricket fans.
The catch was even more impressive given the fact that Agar had only been playing Test cricket for a few months. He had only made his debut in the first Test of the series, and had already made a name for himself with his all-round performances.
But this catch was something else. It was a moment of pure athleticism and skill, and it was a testament to Agar’s ability as a fielder.
It was a moment that will live long in the memory of cricket fans around the world, and it was a reminder of why Ashton Agar is one of the best fielders in the world. He has the ability to produce moments of brilliance that can turn a match on its head, and this catch was one of the best I’ve ever seen.
