One spectator nearly produced an amazing catch from the stands during Tuesday's ODI clash between England and Pakistan at Trent Bridge.  

England were in control of the match from start to finish, but it wasn't just the players catching the eye during a sunny afternoon in Nottingham. 

Coming off of one of England's many sixes, a fan took centre stage as the ball came hurtling towards him in the front row.

He went for the clean catch, but clearly misjudged the situation and was left hanging over the rails that separate the fans from the pitch.

Despite clearly dropping the ball, he still tries to claim he caught it and celebrates like he had just won England the Ashes.

It was a party atmosphere throughout the day, and both the England fans and players were in high spirits as their dominance became clear as the day went on.   

Leading the line was Alex Hales, who helped his side re-write record books as he thumped England to victory with some sensational batting.

The 27-year-old hit England's highest ever score in ODI cricket, smashing 171 runs, surpassing Robin Smith’s 167 at Edgbaston in 1993.  

England won the match by 169 runs and ended up breaking more records in the process.

Their 444-3 broke the highest total in ODI cricket, beating Sri Lanka’s 443-9 against the Dutch, which was set a decade ago.

Lancashire's Jos Buttler hit the quickest half-century by an Englishman off 22 balls, and England smashed the highest number of boundaries reached in an ODI innings, hitting 43 fours and 16 sixes.

The hosts lead the five-game series 3-0, as they look for a rare whitewash against their rivals.
