Cricket is known to be a game of uncertainties and it was evident in the New Zealand vs England 2nd Test at Seddon Park in Hamilton. There are days when fielders grab unbelievable catches which left the spectators’ eyes wide open. However, the opposite was seen in the fifth day of the Test when England’s Joe Denly dropped an absolute ‘gobbler’ and gave a lifeline to Kiwi skipper Kane Williamson. The batsman made full use of the golden chance and went on to score a scintillating century. Twitterati were in disbelief by seeing Denly’s huge blunder and trolled him left right and centre.

The incident took place in the 49th over of the third innings. Jofra Archer bowled a slower delivery in the fourth ball of the over which deceived Williamson and he chipped it straight to Denly who was standing on short mid-on. The catch went at a very low pace and Archer even started his celebration. However, Denly failed to hold on the catch and the Kiwi skipper got a life-line. Everyone in the field couldn’t believe what they saw and it was evident in their reactions. Cricket fans also expressed their opinions on Denly’s dropped catch and this is how they reacted.
