Yes, you read that right! It seemed that Wood had taken a fun challenge into his hands of taking his clothes off after the ball gets hit up in the air and then catch the ball before it hits the ground and it must be said that the pacer was successful to a large extent. Wood took his cap, glasses, t-shirt and shorts off. Wood’s shorts got stuck in his foot but he was able to complete the catch by diving to his left.

The video went instantly viral as the fans came up with hilarious reactions. One of the users wrote, “Bazball is going out of hands” while another said that he hasn’t seen anything like what Wood did.
Wood was named in both ODI and T20I squads for the Bangladesh tour as England slowly build his workload leading up to the Ashes series in June. After the white-ball series in Bangladesh, Wood will ply his trade in IPL 2023 for the Lucknow Super Giants.
Bangladesh host England for three ODIs on March 1, 3 and 6 followed by T20Is on 9,12 and 14.
