This guy catching a cricket ball from the crowd with a beer in his mouth is the king of cool

Unsuspecting cricket fan Jack Davies leapt into action to catch a six at the NatWest T20 Blast clash between Glamorgan and Somerset on Saturday.

As the ball soared towards the stands from Glamorgan’s Colin Ingram, the blue-shirted spectator tucked his pint of beer between his teeth and coolly grasped the wet ball.

Like a pro, he launched the ball back into the field and was duly congratulated by all around him as he sported a look of disbelief.

The spectacular catch was just another day in the office, Davies joked.

“It was pretty rego to be honest, I do it every Saturday – admittedly, it’s a tad more difficult after couple of beers,” he said.

The match in Cardiff on Saturday was brought to an end by the wet weather, with the teams sharing points.

At least Davies didn’t have his phone in his hand, eh.
