Jason Roy’s stunning catch for England is absolutely astonishing

Paul Moore

Take a bow. Superb work on the ropes.

If England are going to fight their way back into their Champions Trophy match against Australia then Jason Roy’s remarkable catch in the deep to dismiss Glenn Maxwell could be a turning point.

Roy’s superb athleticism left the score at Australia 239-5, but such was the skill involved here, the third umpire understandably had to take his time to judge whether Roy had touched the boundary with his foot when he pulled off this stunning catch at full-stretch.

Not only that, but he threw the ball back before landing over the rope and ran back to catch it.

Superb work from the Surrey player.

There’s only one thing that people want to talk about.
