Ben Stokes' Unbelievable No-Look One Handed Catch Is So Good That Twitter Is Stunned

It looked like the hosts of the ICC World Cup 2019, Team England, were in for a surprise when South Africa chose to bowl first and dismissed one of the most celebrated opening batsman, Jonny Bairstow on the first delivery that he faced, thanks to the flamboyant Imran Tahir. 

However, soon enough, the World Cup favourites got back to their winning ways with Jason Roy and Joe Root forming a solid partnership in the early overs of their batting innings followed by skipper Eoin Morgan's technically sound performance that provided him with a half-ton in the first game of the quadrennial tournament. 

England's batting highlight would however consist of more video footage of the lefty all-rounder Ben Stokes who set the Lord's Stadium ablaze with his thunderous batting performance worth 89 runs in just 79 deliveries which included nine boundaries. 

Having said that, none of these shots made for the most exciting moment of the game for the 27-year-old athlete. What really got the thousands of Englishmen watching the match from the bleachers on their feet was this unreal, almost unbelievable catch Stokes took in the 35th over. 

Running towards the boundary and off-balance, Stokes raised his right hand without even looking, possibly to prevent the ball from going for a six. Instead, the ball stuck to the cricketer's hand as he fell down on the field and did a small roll to prevent injury. 

Rising to his feet to the roar of the audience, Stokes found himself to be shocked and took his sweet time to believe what he had done. The incredible catch helped England dismiss South Africa's Andile Phehlukwayo, soon after which, the 'Three Lions' team were able to register their first victory of the 2019 World Cup. 

Twitter responded to the English all-rounder's zeal with complete and utter disbelief: 

For his exceptional batting performance and his superhuman efforts as a fielder, Stokes was also honoured with the Man of the Match award. 

England defeated South Africa by 104 runs and will be locking horns with Pakistan on Monday, 3rd June 2019.
