An old video of a one-day international match is going viral on the internet, where a cricket fan catches the ball standing in the spectator area. The video starts with former England Test cricketer Ian Botham hitting the ball into the stands for a six. A man wearing a t-shirt, jeans, and sunglasses sitting there catches the ball on the opposite side of the boundary.
