Bevan Small: Incredible catch becomes a web sensation

Bevan Small has become an overnight internet sensation after the little-known New Zealand cricketer took an astounding catch on the boundary in a domestic T20 match.

According to the video and news reports, the cricketer jumped in the air to not just deny Northern Districts' Brad Wilson a six but also dismiss him by flinging the ball to a teammate before crashing beyond the ropes. His athletic ability broke a vital 74-run partnership.

The video has had thousands of clicks with 21-year-old being appreciated for his efforts to deny what looked like a certain six once dispatched high into the air by the batsman. Interestingly, Small was the 12th man for his team - Central Stags - and though his efforts earned his side a wicket, the match ended in an 8-wicket defeat for his side.
