Spring Heels

Fantasy Bob and Mrs FB are on a spring tour to Madrid.  Before leaving he left a few balls in the bowling machine with a spring theme.

Fantasy Bob once had spring heels.  Any ball whizzing near him could be brought down - he would leap like a salmon, gazelle, panther or some other piece of fauna.  Nowadays a panda might be a better model for FB's mobility.

But what would have been seen in those far off days as great catches look mundane now.  FB will feature a couple of stupendous efforts from recent years that show how the athleticism of crickets has reached new heights.

First up is the remarkable catch by Scotland's own Kyle Coetzer at the 2008 T20 World Cup. 

As the commentator says - you won't see better than that.
