The incredible catch took place during the 47th over when Nathan Ellis delivered a wide yorker to Marco Jansen, who managed to get a thin edge, sending the ball racing towards the boundary. It appeared to be a certain six, but Sean Abbott had other plans.

Sean Abbott, stationed at sweeper cover, sprinted toward the boundary. With lightning-fast reflexes, he lunged to his left and extended his left hand to pluck the ball out of thin air. Not only did he make the catch, but he also maintained his balance while sliding, adding to the brilliance of the effort.


Abbott’s remarkable catch sent the dangerous Marco Jansen back to the pavilion. Jansen had been batting aggressively, scoring 32 runs off just 15 balls, including four boundaries and a six.

While Sean Abbott’s fielding heroics were a sight to behold, his performance with the ball in the third ODI against South Africa wasn’t as impressive. He was taken to the cleaners and conceded 31 runs in just three overs before being removed from the attack.
