Pic shows: Greatest cricket catch of all time?<br />
<br />
Strikers Ben Laughlin and Jake Weatherald pulled off one of the all-time great boundary catches to send Dwayne Bravo on his way at Etihad Stadium<br />
<br />
<br />
The Adelaide Strikers recorded a 26-run Big Bash victory over the Melbourne Renegades on Monday, but the highlight of their win was an amazing catch from fielder Ben Laughlin.<br />
<br />
The scorecard will actually read that West Indian batsman Dwayne Bravo was dismissed for four runs by Jake Weatherald off the bowling of Rashid Khan - however that doesn't tell the whole tale of the wicket that fell.<br />
<br />
As you can see below, Bravo hit a lofted off-drive was heading over the boundary rope for six at the Etihad Stadium, until it was superbly caught by a sprinting Laughlin.<br />
<br />
But it doesn't end there! The Strikers' seam bowler had the instinct to parry the ball back 30m into play, having fallen over the boundary rope, where on-waiting team-mate Weatherald mopped up to catch the ball confidently, after it had somehow remained in the air.
