Australia’s Marnus Labuschagne took a stunning catch in England's domestic T20 Blast competition on Thursday.

While featuring for Glamorgan against Gloucestershire, Labuschagne grabbed a one-handed catch while diving full length to dismiss Ben Charlesworth off the bowling of Mason Crane.

The wicket left Gloucestershire reeling at 5-45 in the 10th over, while needing 96 off 65 balls in pursuit of Glamorgan's 6-140.

Despite Labuschagne's brilliant catch, the most dramatic moment of the match came in the last over when the batting side needed 11 runs.

Gloucestershire skipper Jack Taylor kept his side in the match with a brilliant 70 runs in 48 balls. However, he was run out on the fourth ball of the last over while completing the second run, which brought Josh Shaw to the crease with seven needed on the final two deliveries.

After taking a couple on the penultimate ball of the match, Gloucestershire needed Shaw to clear the boundary on the final delivery in order to claim victory in the match.

With all eyes on him, Shaw didn’t disappoint as he smashed it five rows into the stands over the long-on boundary. 

Gloucestershire won the match by two wickets.
