Mumbai: In a moment of awesomeness, a photographer in the stands caught a six by South Africa captain Faf du Plessis with one hand while holding the camera in the other. Ian Kington, the cameraman caught the ball in shocking fashion when du Plessis hit a six off Mosaddek Hossain.

The incident may have provided South African fans a moment of joy before their team was brought down by the in-form Bangladesh team later on.

 

The catch, had it been by another player inside the boundaries, would have surely given some serious competition to England’s Ben Stokes, who caught a seemingly impossible catch with one hand on May 30, during the match against South Africa. Pundits even called the feat The Catch of the Century.
