16-Year-Old Almost Pulls Off The 'Greatest Catch In Sporting History' During BBL 8 Tie

If the Indian Premier League (IPL) is considered to be one of the most lucrative T20 tournaments across the world, Australia's very own Big Bash League (BBL), too, continues to entice cricket fans with entertaining and exciting clashes over the years. From some breathtaking bowling spells to batting masterclass of marauding batsmen, the BBL has given cricket fans some of the greatest moments in the sport.

Staying true to its nature, the eighth edition of the BBL is proving to be one of the best since the league's inception. More recently, the 29th match of the ongoing edition between Melbourne Renegades and Brisbane Heat, too, produced some priceless moments that enthralled pundits and spectators alike.

Yes, Baz! He goes large to bring up another half-century, this one from 31 balls!#BBL08 | @Weet_Bix pic.twitter.com/XqpNstvA2a

If the blistering batting display of the 'Bash brothers' Brendon McCullum (69) and Chris Lynn (66*) - who combined to score nine sixes for their side - helped Brisbane to post 192 runs, the magical spells of Brendan Doggett (3-16) and Mitchell Swepson (3-22) forced Melbourne to bundle out for just 91 runs in their run-chase.

While a massive 101-run triumph for Brisbane was already a talking point, the best, or should we say, the priceless moment of the game came through a fan in the stands at the Geelong Cricket Ground. A 16-year-old spectator produced one of the most cherished moments of the game in the 15th over when Lynn hit a massive six straight down the ground.

This would've been the greatest catch in sporting history ðð

While the Brisbane batsman wasn't too bothered with the fielder at the ropes since the ball was travelling well beyond his reach, the young boy, who was sitting in the stands, ran from his seat and attempted to catch the ball near the sight screen. Showing great determination, the youngster nearly pulled off what would've surely been the greatest catch in sporting history, but he just couldn't hold onto the ball which slipped in the last moment.

Though he missed out on completing the catch, the youngster's effort was hailed by cricket fans across the globe.

Great effort considering he nearly copped it in the face ð ð ð ð
