During the practise match that South Africa played against England A, wicketkeeper Sam Billings showed off some impressive talents.
At the St. Lawrence Ground in Canterbury on Tuesday, during the ongoing practise match between England A and South Africa, Sam Billings made a spectacular catch. While attempting to play his shot on the front foot on the first day of the four-day competition, South African captain Dean Elgar got an edge off of a back-of-a-length delivery that England pacer Craig Overton threw to him. The ball had just about reached the ground when wicketkeeper Billings made a swift dive to his left and caught it just in time to prevent it from falling to the ground. The ball had flown between Billings and the first slip.
England Cricket shared a video of Billings making the catch on social media and lauded his performance, saying that it was an excellent catch. The caption for the image said, “What a grab @sambillings.”
Following the conclusion of the practise match that has been going on for the past four days, England and South Africa are scheduled to play one other in a three-match Test series beginning on August 17 at Lord’s in London. The second match is planned to begin on August 25 at Old Trafford in Manchester, while the third game is scheduled to begin on September 8 at the Kennington Oval in London. Both teams will then go back to London for the fourth and final game.
Both teams have competed in a total of six white-ball matches prior to the start of the test series. While the one-day international (ODI) series between them resulted in a 1-1 draw when the weather prevented the deciding game from being played, the twenty20 international (T20I) series resulted with South Africa earning a 2-1 win despite the fact that they lost the opening match.
