Of late, cricket is delivering extraordinary scenes on a regular basis. The latest one comes from the brand new league Mzansi Super League. The spinner Aaron Phangiso grabbed all the eyeballs with a stunning catch when he dived at full stretch in the sweeper position.
As it happened:
The incident took place during the match between Jozi Stars and Nelson Mandela Bay Giants. It was in the 16th over of the game when Pongolo tried to guide the bouncer over third man region.

However, all he had managed to make the ball lob high in the air towards sweeper cover. When the ball was about to land among three fielders, Phangiso dived full stretch to grab the ball inches from the ground.
The catch looked confusing with the ball tossing up when he struck the ground. However, the ball ended up falling on the hands of Phangiso, which helped them to appeal and celebrate the wicket, after the official call.

The effort from Phangiso was a top one, as none would have expected him to grab such a catch. In the end, it was more a productive thing for the team, as it came on the winning side of things.
Brief match report:
Initially, it was Nelson Mandela Bay Giants, who won the toss and asked Jozi Stars to bat first. It was a right decision from the skipper, as the bowlers delivered the goods on a regular interval of the time.
The skipper JJ Smuts himself was the wrecker-in-chief, who bagged three wickets while Phangiso bagged a couple. For Jozi, Vilas’ unbeaten 38* helped them to put 124 runs on the board.
