Australian cricketer Jason Sangha took a stunning diving catch in Match 16 of the Sheffield Shield, which was played between New South Wales and Tasmania at the Sydney Cricket Ground in Sydney. The former Under-19 captain, Sangha, who is playing for New South Wales, was stationed at second slip when he took a stunner.

During the Tasmania’s innings, the 24-year-old right-handed batter, dived towards his left and grabbed the ball in air going fully horizontal to send the Tasmania batter, Jack Doran back to the pavilion, having scored 43 off 117 balls. Cricket Australia took to X to share the video of the phenomenal catch with a caption, ““Get your cape on young man!” Here’s Jason Sangha flying for a speccy at second slip”.
