Veteran England pacer Stuart Broad, who on Thursday became only the second bowler to take 100 Test wickets at the iconic Lord’s ground, continued to impress on Day 3 of the ongoing first Test against South Africa but this time with his fielding.

At the age of 36, Broad defied science and picked up a sensational catch to get rid of Proteas’ speedster Kagiso Rabada. It all happened during the 78th over of South Africa’s first innings bowled by pacer Matthew Potts. Potts bowled a short delivery, and Rabada tried to pull the ball over the mid-on fielder.

It appeared that the red leather would easily sail over Broad’s head, but the Nottinghamshire cricketer had some other plans. Broad made a huge leap in the air and extended his right hand to pluck the ball from one hand out of thin air. In the follow-through, he tumbled on the ground with Potts and England captain Ben Stokes rushed to celebrate the wicket with Broad.

Here is the video:

Coming back to South Africa’s innings, the tourists managed to earn a 161-run lead over England’s first innings total of 165. South Africa were bowled out for 326, with Sarel Erwee being their top scorer (73).

Apart from the left-handed opener, there was a huge contribution from the lower order as well, with valuable scores by Marco Jansen (48), Keshav Maharaj (41) and Anrich Nortje (28*). For the home team, Broad (3/71) and Stokes (3/71) both bagged three wickets each, while Potts took two scalps.
