Watch Nicholas Pooran produce gravity-defying piece of fielding

This is one of those clips that no matter how many times you watch it, your brain is really going to struggle to work out what it has just witnessed.

Stationed at long-on, with the ball seemingly destined for nothing but six, the Kings XI Punjab man flung himself backwards to somehow prevent that happening.

In what many are dubbing as the greatest piece of individual fielding they’ve ever seen, Pooran somehow managed to pluck the ball out of the air and fling it back into play in a stunning show of athleticism.

Unsurprisingly Twitter was taken aback by the effort.

If there’s footage of any fielding more impressive than this, please send it our way.
