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".

"We've seen some great catches - this will take some beating," he added.
