New Zealand batsman Henry Nicholls​ was caught out in one of the most bizarre dismissals in test match history.

​Nicholls was the fifth wicket to go down in the third test match against England.

He hit the ball onto Daryl Mitchell's bat​, which ricocheted to Alex Lees​ who took a simple catch at mid-off. 

Jack Leach, who bowled the delivery, couldn't believe it as he looked on in amazement. 

Nicholls ​had to depart as he made 19 runs. 

He was left stunned at the crease, with England captain Ben Stokes shocked at the wicket. 

Needless to say, the wicket of Nicholls sent social media wild.

One Twitter user wrote: "As cruel as the dismissal is, brilliant awareness by Lees to take the catch."

A second wrote: "One of the most bizarre dismissals I've ever seen."

A third added: "I think this is the most unlucky/lucky wicket I've ever seen, just ridiculous."

Leach won't get a luckier wicket in his career.
