WATCH: Cricket fan risks life and limb to perform superb diving catch

The enthusiastic punter hurled himself through the air and across fellow supporters to make the daring catch

This man certainly kept his eyes on the prize as he risked (probably minor) injury to collect a stray ball at a cricket match.

An unnamed fan hurled himself into the crowd as the ball came towards him during a Big Bash cricket match between the Melbourne Renegades and the Perth Scorchers in Melbourne on Wednesday.

The punter successfully gathered Chris Gayle's strike in an upside down position, before raising his hand to the cheering masses.
