HomeSportsWatch: Fakhar Zaman caught a running catch in the first match of...

Pakistan opener Fakhar Zaman took a brilliant catch to dismiss Nepal’s Gulsan Jha in the opening match of the 2023 Asia Cup at the Multan Cricket Stadium on Wednesday.

In the 21st over of Nepal’s innings, Jha aggressively aimed to attack a yorker bowled by Shadab Khan, hoping to launch it over deep mid-wicket. Unfortunately, he managed only a single off the top of what was initially expected to touch into the empty outfield.

Zaman, however, had an alternate plan as he came in swiftly from the boundary rope, tried to dive forward and took the catch mid-air. This exceptional fielding performance took the commentators and spectators by surprise.
