Chelmsford: A slip fielder might have to spend all day on his haunches without the ball coming his way, but on the one occasion that it does, he is expected to have the concentration and the reflexes to latch on to it.

Former England captain Alastair Cook showed perfect reflexes while giving an interview on the sidelines of an English County Cricket match between Essex and Middlesex.

 

A miss-placed shot by one of the Essex coaches sent a ball hurtling towards Cook and the interviewer.

In a marvellous exhibition of catching however, Cook, whose back was turned towards the ball, stuck his hand out in front of the reporter’s face, and caught it. He certainly saved a few broken bones there.

This great exhibition of catching by Cook comes just a week ahead of England’s series against South Africa, which is set to get underway next week. This will be the first time that Cook takes to the field after resigning from Test captaincy post England’s tour of India, last year.
