THE Sydney Sixers' Jordan Silk has taken one of the great catches of cricket in a thrilling Big Bash defeat of Brisbane Heat last night.

And while the game itself was crowd-pleaser, it is the magic catch that will people talk about for many a year to come.

Cricket immortal Sir Viv Richards even described it as best catch he's ever seen.

Sydney was defending a tiny 140  total when the big catch helped turn the game.

When Craig Kieswetter bashed out what should have been a comfortable boundary, Silk delivered a spectacular run and dive to his left to take the memorable catch.

"I think it's a fluke. It was nice that it stuck," Silk said.

Luck or not, the catch is a hit, with more than 21,000 You tube views of the amazing moment by 5am today.

Brisbane fell five short of victory, ending the night at 7-136.
