- Freak Catch makes the crowd giggle at Unusual Stars vs Hurricanes match in Hobart
A cricket fan instantly transformed into an Australian legend by catching the ball in his beer mug during a Big Bash League cricket game.
The amazing coincidence came when the Melbourne Stars tore a loss from the jaws of victory against the Hobart Hurricanes at the Bellerive Oval in Hobart on Saturday.
During the sixteenth round, the hurricanes were in trouble when the world's best Twenty20 batsman Englishman Dawid Malan hit a fine-legged six into the crowd.
As the ball fell behind the border fence, a young spectator in a white shirt started laughing and raised his arms to the cameras.
When the camera zoomed in and re-shot it it became clear that the young man had tried to catch the ball but missed.
Amazingly, an older man sitting next to him raised his clear plastic beer mug and the ball was clearly visible in it.
The man instantly became an Australian hero, finishing his drink with a cheeky grin before flicking the beer-soaked ball back onto the field.
The man did the most Australian thing: he tried to end his beer with the ball in the mug

The soaking wet hop-flavored ball had to be replaced to play.
The bizarre moment brought a good laugh to an unusual match in which a shock blow breakdown landed the stars an unexpected third straight loss.
