Kent's Matt Henry took one of the best catches you'll see vs Worcestershire in RLODC

It's been a very decent start to the season for Kent.

Not only are Matt Walker's side flying high in the County Championship, they have also impressed in the shorter format, facing Worcestershire in the semi-finals of the Royal London One-Day Cup at Blackfinch New Road on Sunday.

Worcestershire set a solid target of 306, but had to fight back from 48-4 following a lacklustre start to their innings.

That was despite the double blow of being without Moeen Ali, who played for England in Saturday's 38-run ODI victory over Australia, and captain Joe Leach, who is out for the season with a stress fracture of the back.

In their place, it was Ben Cox who shone with a knock of 122 not out - his maiden first-class ton - while tail-ender Ed Barnard also made a half-century.

Cox's display was thrilling, taking 26 from a last over that included two reverse-sweeps.

However, the best moment of the day came from Kent's Matt Henry.

What a catch

Brett D'Oliveira was on 78 from 103 balls when he was caught in the deep by Henry - and it was absolutely sensational:

It's hard to think of a better catch than that this season and bowler Joe Denly can't have seen it coming.

Kent's reply got off to a disappointing start, Bell-Drummond dismissed after just four minutes at the crease, making just one run.

The Spitfires were missing Sam Billings from their batting order as he too was away with England, though he made just eight against the Baggy Green.


Denly was then out for a duck and Sean Dickson followed not too long after for eight.

Whatever else happens in the semi-final, Henry can rest safe in the knowledge that his catch will live long in the memory.

Yorkshire will travel to play Hampshire in the other semi-final on Monday. 

Is this the best catch of the season? Have your say in the comments.
