London - Former England captain Nasser Hussain has set a Guinness World Record for the highest catch of a cricket ball.
In a challenge arranged by Sky Sport's Cricket a drone released the ball from a height of 32 metres before moving up to the even greater height of 49 metres.
The ball would reach a speed of 118km/h.
Speaking on the Sky Sport's broadcast from Lord's Hussain said: "Sky Sports are always looking to push the limits and be innovative in their approach to coverage, and this was certainly a very different experience for me.
“It was great fun to spend the morning attempting to catch cricket balls dropped from a drone at the home of cricket – something I never thought I would do. But I am looking forward to giving my hands a rest and getting back to the commentary box for the upcoming Test match.”
Hussain played 98 Tests for England making 5 764 runs with 14 centuries and retired in 2004.
He will commentate the Pakistan tour to England, as the two teams play their first of four Tests at Lord's on July 14.
