India vs Afghanistan Match 5, Asia Cup 2018 Super Four: Kuldeep Yadav took the catch of Mohammad Nabi to bring an end to his brilliant 56-ball 64. Khaleel was the bowler who got the wicket, but things could have got ugly. Dinesh Karthik positioned at covers went for the catch without realising that Kuldeep was closer to the ball. There was no communication between the fielders and this could have been a nasty collision, fortunately, it isn’t. Nabi was trying to chop the length delivery over the infield but miscues it straight to cover where the chinaman manages to take it, even after the collision.Also Read - IPL 2021 Preview, CSK vs KKR Final Match: Kolkata Knight Riders Spinners Hold Aces as World Awaits MS Dhoni 'Magic' One Last Time
