English cricket player makes amazing juggling catch

Wednesday January 14th, 2015

To the American observer, cricket is an entirely indecipherable sport, but what England's Chris Woakes did Wednesday in a match in Australia is quite obviously pretty cool.

Without the benefit of a glove, catching a cricket ball sure seems hard. Woakes couldn't corral the ball with his hands but was able to hang onto it after it ricocheted off his feet. 

Watch: Long flip-throw results in a crazy goal​

Not only did Woakes show off his smooth hands in the field, he also bowled 1-46 from nine overs, which the BBC says is quite good. Well done, chap.
