Fan Grabs One-Handed Stunner While Holding Drink As Rutherford Smashes Six In AUS vs WI 3rd T20

While taking a catch can sometimes prove to be a difficult task even for some of the professional cricket stars, a spectator made it look rather easy during the third and the final T20I between Australia and West Indies in Perth on Tuesday. The incident happened when Sherfane Rutherford played a brilliant hook shot that went over the fine leg fence for a six. Even though the fan who took the catch was enjoying a drink, he grabbed the catch by one hand, making it look all too easy.

The video of the spectator’s one-handed catch, without spilling a drop of the drink has gone viral on social media. The clip was first shared by Cricket Australia’s official social media handle.
