In International cricket, we see some fielders trying to attempt a catch while off-balanced inside the boundary. In doing so, they throw the ball towards their teammate to complete the catch. However, during a Tennis ball match in India, a fielder took a fielder attempted a catch in a rather Shaolin Soccer-style while fielding on the boundary ropes.

In a video that went viral on social media, the batsman can be seen striking the ball through the mid-wicket region toward the boundary, where the fielder jumps to grab the ball. Albeit, after realising that he was too close to the boundary line, he tossed the ball up while being inside the boundary by kicking the ball high in the air towards his teammate, who then completes the catch. The crowd present there applauded the fielder's valiant acrobatic effort.

The video went viral as soon as it was shared on Twitter by a user. This also caught the attention of the former Indian cricket legend, Sachin Tendulkar, who couldn’t hold himself back from acknowledging the fielder's effort, though on a hilarious note. “This is what happens when you bring a guy who also knows how to play football," Tendulkar wrote while resharing the video on his Twitter account.

Moreover, former England skipper, Michael Vaughan, and the New Zealand all-rounder, Jimmy Neesham, didn't shied away from appreciating this brilliant fielding effort. “Surely the greatest catch of all time,” Vaughan wrote sharing the video. 

While James Neesham also shared the video and tweeted, “Absolutely outstanding". Meanwhile, some users questioned the validity of the catch by asking if the leg of the fielder was touching the ground while attempting the catch or not.
