Fielding is one of the crucial things in the game of cricket. Sometimes it is not the batting or bowling of a team but the fielding that takes center stage in a win or loss. This is one of the main reasons why a good defender is always valued and appreciated. As a result, the spectacular on-field efforts recorded by the camera rarely go unnoticed. Such is the standard of cricket these days that a sensational fielding game is nothing new. Despite all this, a take by Englishman Paul Coughlin attracted a lot of attention. So much so that even England's star all-rounder Ben Stokes couldn't help but react.

Coughlin took an exceptional catch off his own bowling during a T20 Blast match that left netizens in awe. The right-arm pacer bowled a full toss to the batter, who smashed the ball powerfully to the ground. Coughlin brought his right hand down the line of the ball to escape, but to everyone's surprise, the ball stuck in his hand and the batter had to leave.

“What the hell… just kidding,” Stokes said while reacting to the video.
