This video is worth watching even if you don’t follow cricket.

The catches are just amazing.

How the level and quality of fielding has improved in cricket, quite literally in leaps and bounds, over the last 20 years has been a revelation to I. I used to think — and comment — that the degree of athleticism in baseball (putting aside their need for girlish gloves to catch a ball) was much higher than in cricket. NOT ANY MORE. These catches are as good as anything you would see in a baseball park and many of them by fielders sans gloves.

I have cricket on SLING and have had so for years and years. So, I could have watched all or some of the IPL. But I don’t! I watch the opening ceremony or ceremonies and that is it. I just don’t know. The IPL matches leave me cold. I guess it is the razzmatazz. I watch T20s and ODIs — but not the IPL.

Anywho …

Watch this video.
