There cannot be a better or more difficult catch than the one in the video below.
It is often said in cricket that catches win matches. But then came some unbelievable catches which win hearts too.
One such catch was taken in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy match between the Railways and Maharashtra at Indore. The acrobatic trick that Maharashtra boy Ruturaj Gaekwad performed will be talked about for years every time there is a debate on all-time great catches in cricket.
Running speed, composure, strong control on nerves and reaction speed that will put even a Cheetah to shame – the catch had all the ingredients that takes excitement in sports to the ultimate level.
Gaekwad took this catch airborne on the other side of the boundary, there was little time to react as ball had to be released and thrown back into the field before his feet land beyond the ropes. What happens next is awe-awakening.
Explaining such acts is difficult. Live the moment captured on camera.
HOLY MOLY! ? We have a new greatest ever catch…. pic.twitter.com/ty8gHyaIeb

Such acts don’t take long to trend. Praise expectedly fell in for Ruturaj from all quarters.
