The ongoing new-format tournament in England - The Hundred - has proven to be quite entertaining for everyone especially with fans allowed in the stadiums. Amid the grueling Test series between India and England, the 100-ball tournament offers something different and exciting for people looking to have an enjoyable time with some cricket.

The recently-concluded match No. 31 between Northern Superchargers and Birmingham Phoenix was a perfect spectacle of what the tournament stands for - Entertainment! Chasing a target of 144 for a place in the final, the Phoenix went berserk at Headingley. Finn Allen and Liam Livingstone stitched a breathtaking 106-run partnership off 51 deliveries to take their side comfortably over the line.

One of the best crowd catches in cricket

Apart from the heroics of the players on the field, there was a moment in the stands as well which caught everyone's attention. With Phoenix needing 60 runs in 57 deliveries, Finn Allen stepped out and smoked a huge six off Adil Rashid towards the stands behind long-on.

The ball was in the air for a few seconds, which had given a man in the stands enough time to position himself perfectly to catch it. While the people sitting beside him tried to get away from the path of the ball, this young man had his focus and eyes set only on the cricket ball.

As the ball came down, he made a late adjustment to complete the catch off his chest. However, in the process, the man stumbled upon the chairs and fell down. Despite all of this, he kept hold of the ball. With the cameras were on him, he stood on chairs and raised his hands to produce a perfect celebration for taking a sensational catch.

Fans applaud the brilliant effort

There was a huge applause for the man at Headingley as even the on-air commentators were in awe of his brilliant effort.
