“This looks like it could be an absolute miracle. Have you ever seen anything like this?” the commentator said.
A clash between Governor-General’s XI and New Zealand on Thursday witnessed yet another bizarre catch in a cricket match. Australia’s quick bowler, Heather Graham, made an absurd yet simple catch dismissing New Zealand’s Katie Perkins.
The video of the witty catch shows Perkins hitting Graham’s ball which lands directly on to the bat of Katey Martin, at the non-striker’s end. Martin is left with no time to get out of the ball’s way which flew up in the air after colliding with her bat. Graham was quick to not let go of the bizarre catch and she caught the ball, Mirror reports.

New Zealand’s score was 287/3 when Perkins was caught out after her unbelievable dismissal by Graham. Perkins, who was out for 4, walked off the field as Martin and the fielding side laughed and joked about the nature of the dismissal. “This looks like it could be an absolute miracle. Have you ever seen anything like this?” commentator and former Aussie cricketer, Mel Jones, said.
After Perkins’ dismissal, Martin batted on through after the wicket, finishing with 72 runs as New Zealand reached a score of 323/7 from their 50 overs.
