New Zeeland’s opener Will Young Pulled off a stunner during 4th Day’s of play of the second test between New Zealand and South Africa at the Hagley Oval, In the 79th over of South Africa’s second Innings all-rounder Marco Jansen clipped a ball off his pad and the ball was set to go to the boundary but Will Young has other ideas he was the only fielder stationed in that leg side region, came running around and caught the ball by stretching his right hand over the boundary line and luckily ball landed in his big hands, despite the tumble he held on to that catch and leaving everyone amazed including the spectators and commentators.
Former New Zealand player Craig McMillan twitted on the catch “That is sensational work. It just hung there. He has plucked that out of nowhere, Hard to beat that Will Young catch in 2022”
This catch was the same as Binura Fernando took the catch of Sanju Samson in the second T20I between India and Sri Lanka at the Dharamsala, but the difference was Young’s catch was a pressure catch the boundary line this is why it is being rated much higher.
