Cameron Brancroft catch

Ashes 2019, 2nd Test: Australia’s Cameron Bancroft takes a breathtaking catch to dismiss England opener Rory Burns

Before the start of Ashes 2019, Australian legend Steve Waugh said Cameron Bancroft is the best short-leg fielder he has ever seen. And on Thursday (August 15), Bancroft proved why Waugh went gaga over him.

The 26-year-old took a breathtaking catch to dismiss England opener Rory Burns in the first innings of the ongoing second Test at Lord’s.

Burns must have thought he was safe after he sliced a Pat Cummins delivery in the air. The ball did not stay in the air for long and was also at the left-hand of Bancroft. Not a single England supporter present in the stadium would have expected the young Aussie fielder to pull off the catch.

However, Bancroft went on to take a blinder and left everyone shellshocked.
