Video: brilliant Akmal catch on Ricky Ponting


This video comes up under a YouTube search for “cricket fights” (don’t ask what we were doing playing around with those search terms…) But its true focus is a remarkable catch made by Pakistan’s wicketkeeper Akmal off Aussie batsman Ricky Ponting. The reflexes are incredible as Ponting’s bat barely touches a fast ball – and Akmal catches it a split-second later, barely two metres behind Ponting.
