    It is a well-renowned fact that the English crowd are the best bunch of people to play cricket in front of. But the recent incident at NatWest T20Blast competition will make you look differently at them. A working class adult, enjoying his beer and the T20 action, responded to a ball hit in his direction by pulling off a blinder using his right hand, while keeping the beer in balance with his left.

    The moment of magic was covered by excellent camera work. Even the commentators for the match stood up and applauded the efforts of the young lad’s balancing act. Not a drop of beer was wasted or spilt in the process. The incident occurred during Glamorgan’s match against Somerset at Cardiff yesterday.

    Even though the crowd could not witness the entire 40-overs of the match due to rain interruptions, the spectators had their fair share of fun witnessing knocks from Colin Ingram and Jacques Rudolph. The incident occurred during the 6th over of Glamorgan’s innings. Jim Allenby was given the responsibility to stem the flow of runs but in turn was taken for 15 runs in the over.

    Colin Ingram was at the striker’s end was in full flow, smashing a boundary off the previous ball. He then hit the fifth ball of the over for a massive six over long-on where he found the Jonty Rhodes of spectators. The match would also be remembered for the ridiculous shot hit by his fellow compatriot Jacques Rudolph.

    During the 15th over of the match, Groenewald bowled one at the pads of the former South African Test player. Rudolph was already committed hit the ball over the top of the short  fine leg. As it turned out, the ball had enough legs to go over the rope as the left-hander stunned one and all in the ground. NatWest T20Blast Twitter page was quick to upload the two snippets covering the magical moment
