Watch – Flying Mohammad Shahzad takes catch of the ICC T20 World Cup

We have seen stunning catches in the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup in the UAE. In the game against Scotland, Afghanistan wicket-keeper Mohammad Shahzad took an unbelievable catch to dismiss Matthew Cross. The ball had almost passed him but the veteran of the game went for a full-stretched dive to complete the catch of the tournament.

Shahzad has faced the wrath of the fans and cricket experts for being overweight and maintaining poor fitness standards but his catch will silence his critics. Naveen-ul-Haq drew an edge from the batters willow and the rest of the work was done by the wicket-keeper.

He was lauded by fans. Here are some of the tweets.
