Call off the fight, we’ve found the drop of the year and there would not be too many worse in the history of Test cricket.

England’s Joe Denly has put down the kind of catch that would be considered soft in warm-ups.

Needing to win the Test to draw the series, England desperately needed to break a 126-run stand between Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor when Jofra Archer produced what should have been the breakthrough.

Conning Williamson with a slower ball, Archer wheeled away in celebration as the ball lobbed softly straight to Denly at short mid-wicket. There was only one problem. Denly somehow managed to drop it.

“Out, oh no,” the commentary ran. “What have you done? What have you done there?”

“Joe Denly has dropped an absolute gobbler. What a dolly”

Williamson, who sits third on the ICC’s Test batting rankings, was on 62 at the time and looks well set to make the life count.
