Catching is one aspect of cricket that requires concentration and training to perfect. Over and over again we have seen even the best fielders in the game drop sitter. Some even write a comedy of errors while trying to catch the easy catch. Similarly, a 16-year-old cricketer became the center of attention after pulling off “the biggest dropped catch ever” during a village league game. Alex Ryder, who plays for Aldwick Cricket Club, took an incredible catch during a village league match against Lingfield Cricket Club.
After missing an opportunity to catch and bowl a regulation, Ryder inadvertently lifted the ball back into the air, taking the catch a second time asking.
The clip was shared by ‘That’s So Village’ on its official Twitter handle.

The batsman can also be seen smiling and raising his hand in disbelief.
The video has since gone viral, garnering over 3,000 likes and over 300 retweets.
