Pakistani players are frequently mocked for their poor fielding abilities. But, unlike usual, the Pakistan team made a fantastic catch. During the ICC T20 World Cup match between Pakistan and Zimbabwe, Pakistan captain Babar Azam took an unbelievable flying catch.
Shadab Khan entered the game to bowl the 14th over of Zimbabwe’s innings. In the final ball of this over, Babar has taken the catch. Regis Chakabva attempted to defend Shadab’s bowled ball, but it hit the edge of the bat and went straight to the slips. Babar Azam, Pakistan’s captain, was the fielder at slip. With one hand, Babar caught the ball that had gotten away from the slips and turned it into a wicket. Babar Azam’s flying catch astounded both spectators and team members.
