Brisbane Heat’s Ben Laughlin completed a stunning catch during the Eliminator of the ongoing edition of the Big Bash League (BBL). Laughlin ran to his right from long-on, executing a one-handed screamer to account for the dismissal of Michael Neser of Adelaide Strikers. Bowler Marnus Labuschagne celebrated wildly as Neser slog-swept the full toss, handing an opportunity to Laughlin who took full advantage. “INCREDIBLE BEN LAUGHLIN! @BKTtires| #BBL10,” read the caption on the video of the catch uploaded by Cricket Australia’s official Twitter handle.
