Despite spells of rain in Southampton, cricket in England continued to entertain one and all, with a unique piece of fielding display. After delivering a top-notch delivery, Kent’s Matt Milnes appealed for the longest time before a 360-degree allowed him to complete a sensational catch.
Rains have haunted English cricket in the past, none more than in the last week, with three days of England’s Test action against Pakistan being washed out due to rain. However, elsewhere there was still action to be seen, as Kent contested the heavyweights Middlesex in the Bob Willis Trophy. On the first day of the clash between the two titans, English pace prospect Matt Milnes emerged as a shining light in overcast conditions, not just with his ball.
In just the fourth over, the pacer struck with a brilliant piece of fielding off his bowling. Milnes, following a delivery that was slightly shorter than a length delivery, got the southpaw Max Holden to get an inside off his bat, which looped up in the air. However, that was not it all as the bowler was busy appealing long and loudly for a leg-before wicket.
As the umpire shook his head, the bowler immediately took a dramatic turn, 360-degree before running towards the ball, completing a dramatic dismissal. Arguably one of the best that the county season has seen this season, with a stunning reflex from Kent’s premier pacer. A confused batsman had to walk off the field, with the pacer celebrating alongside his teammates after an unbelievable set of events that transpired at Canterbury.
