Asia Cup 2018, India vs Pakistan 5th ODI: Super-sub Manish Pandey took a superb catch to dismiss the Pakistan captain in the ongoing Asia Cup 2018 fixture. Ahmed in order to up the ante tried to take on Kuldeep Yadav but found Pandey in the deep who covered 20 meters to complete the catch. First, he took the catch then realised he was going to overbalance himself and step into the ropes, so he flicked the ball in the air, then regained position and control to complete the catch. He scored six runs off 12 balls.
Here is the video of his dismissal, watch out for Manish Pandey’s catch.
Earlier in the day, it was Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who got India off to a dream start with a double strike to remove the Pakistan openers.
