Catching is an aspect of cricket that needs concentration and training to perfect. Time and time again, we’ve seen even the best field players in the game drop sitters. Some even write comedy of mistakes while trying to hold on to an easy catch. Likewise, a 16-year-old cricketer came to the fore after making one of the “biggest catches ever” in a village competition. Alex Ryder, who plays for Aldwick Cricket Club, made an incredible catch in a village competition against Lingfield Cricket Club.
After frisking a set of rules and bowling the opportunity, Ryder accidentally kicked the ball back into the air and took the catch the second time he asked for it.
The clip was shared by “That’s so Village” on their official Twitter handle.
The biggest dropped catch ever!?

Even his teammates couldn’t contain their laughter as you can hear one of the players say, “Oh my days, please be on camera!”
The batter can also be seen smiling and raising his arms in disbelief.
The video has since gone viral, racking up over 3,000 likes and over 300 retweets.
This is how Twitter reacted to the video:
“Pff, he dropped it. Keep your head down, plum,” one user tweeted.
