Tom Latham Stuns Faf Du Plessis With Catch of the Season

New Delhi: There is an old saying in cricket that catches win you matches and it seems that New Zealand star Tom Latham thinks very highly of this phrase.

Latham plucked a stunner out of thin air to dismiss South African skipper Faf Du Plessis on the second day of the Hamilton Test.

Fielding at short-leg, Latham anticipated that Du Plessis was going for a sweep shot and the Kiwi opener ran to take his position, where he thought the ball would end up coming.

Twitter broke into frenzy right after Latham's spectacular catch with many even calling it as one of the best catches of all time.

Latham may be struglling to get some runs under his belt at the moment but this moment of magic will certainly boost his confident. Even if he fails to light up the ongoing Test with the bat, his stunner in the field will be shown around the world, over and over again, for a long time to come.
