Former England captain Nasser Hussain recently broke the Guinness World Record for taking the highest catch of all time.

The challenge was thrown by Sky Sports at the Lord’s stadium, which is all set to host the first test between England and Pakistan, next week.  Hussain set a new record, when he held on the leather ball dropped by a drone from a height of 150 feet.

The 2004-retiree  started of the challenge by catching the ball from a height of 100 feat. After finding it too easy, he asked the adjudicators to increase the height. Flying at an height of 150 feat, the drone dropped the ball and Hussain grabbed it, setting the world record.

He went on to further try and catch a ball dropped from 400 feet, but failed to do so. Never-the-less the second one already earned him the record.
