In the ongoing County Championship, Luke Wells grabbed eyeballs after taking a stunning catch off his own bowling during the match between Lancashire and Northamptonshire on Tuesday.

Lancashire captain Keaton Jennings called it right at the toss and chose to bowl first against Northamptonshire. The move worked well, as Lancashire dismissed the opposition on just 232, despite Sam Whiteman’s fighting knock of 79. In response, Lancashire scored more than double what Northamptonshire scored. Josh Bohannon and George Balderson scored Daddy hundreds and took the team to a score of 524, giving the m a lead of 292 runs.

Jennings enforced the follow-on and asked the opposition to bat again. Luke Wells was tossed the ball very late in the innings, in the 69th over, when five more wickets were required. While bowling over the wicket in the 77th over to Tom Taylor, Wells bowled a full delivery just outside the off-stump. The batsman tried to drive it over the covers, but he was unsuccessful in timing it right. The ball flew to Wells’ left side at a high speed and the English all-rounder put out his left arm as the ball stuck to it magnificently. His teammates rushed to his side to congratulate him for his stunning catch.

The Northants wrapped up the match soon after, and Lancashire sealed the game with a considerable margin of an inning and 26 runs. Nothing has gone well for the Northants, as they have won only one game out of 11, lost seven, and drawn three, and are ranked last in 10th place. Lancashire, on the other hand, has won three in 11, drawn seven, and lost just one.
