Yorkshire Vikings' Jack Leaning pulled off a stunning catch during England's domestic T20 competition against Lancashire. Leaning's incredible one-handed blinder surprised everyone when the cricketer sent Lancashire's Arron Lilley back to the pavilion. Leaning was fielding at the cover boundary when a hard hit from Lilley off pacer Liam Plunkett went up in the air. It looked like a six but Leaning launched himself and plucked an incredible grasp.

Former England captain Nasser Hussain, who was doing commentary during the match, termed the catch as "amazing".
