The veteran bowler, standing at wide mid-on, made a stunning grab to dismiss Kagiso Rabada
Broad, 36, looked on with an expression of bemusement and surprise after taking the catch
Off the bowling of Matthew Potts, left-hander Rabada made sweet contact with the ball and must have felt it was heading over Broad’s head at wide mid-on.
But the 6ft 4ins Nottinghamshire star took several steps backwards and launched himself upwards into the air, pouching the ball in his right hand.
Broad then celebrated with a look of surprise on his face, and was mobbed by captain Ben Stokes and then his team-mates.

Sky Sports commentator Mel Jones said: ‘Goes up, and goes over… No he hasn’t! He hasn’t! I was looking to the boundary line.
‘Stuart Broad has taken one of the catches at Lord’s. No one can believe it, except for that man there (Broad).’
South Africa, having bowled England out for 165, were themselves dismissed for 326 – a lead of 161.
