Kayne Williamson pulled off one of the best catches you are likely to see all summer on the fourth day of the Black Caps' second test against Sri Lanka this morning.

With Sri Lanka 244/9, Williamson brought the home side's first innings to a close with a full-stretched, one handed dive to dismiss Rangana Herath for five.

It showed immaculate timing, quick reflexes and a keen eye, the same skills that helped Williamson to a first innings century on day two.

Williamson's catch followed another stunner from Martin Guptill, who caught a one-handed stunner at second slip to dismiss Angelo Mathews for 47.
