    Is this what passes as 'amazing' in cricket?

    I tried to find Bo Jackson's catch where he literally ran up the wall in left center to make the catch about two feet above a tall wall, but couldn't find that one either.

    Uhm, guys please, let's not litter a thread about amazing catches with these useless baseball 'catches'.

    Cricket uses a heavier and slightly smaller ball with an almost lacquer type finish, which makes it much more difficult to catch than a baseball. Because of this a cricket ball probably travels faster to the boundary as well - I don't know, I was never good at physics...
    Also, cricket fielders don't have a bucket affixed to their hands to help them catch these balls.

    The video of the ball girl is pretty cool, but any of these baseball wall gymnastics disqualifies the catch, as cricket fielders on the boundary have to keep inside the field of play - they cannot touch the rope - or the catch doesn't count.

    This is what makes the catch so special.
    Hope I cleared this up for our uninformed American posters...

    Crowley you're slipping. This one is CLEARLY better due to the fact that the catcher is running towards the ropes. Terrible quality sound mind.

    I agree after watching both catches this one is amazing.
    The only difference with this is that its not a South African catching it , if it were Crowley would be in total agreeance.

    Oh please, 'best catch ever' isn't something that can really be quantified in any case, so it will always be subjective.

    Anyway, Kemp caught it one handed, running to his left and had to time a jump, so his catch is bloody amazing.
    The other catch I also think is amazing, as the player (can't see who it is) showed great presence of mind about the boundary.

    Two very, very good catches.
