Babar took a great catch
Questions are constantly being raised on the Pakistan team’s fielding. The team has been let down by their fielders on several big occasions. But in the match against Zimbabwe, captain Babar Azam took an excellent catch. Zimbabwean wicketkeeper Regis Chakabwa came to the crease on the last ball of the 14th over of the innings. Shabad Khan’s delivery took the outside edge of his bat to slip. The ball was away from Babar Azam who was fielding there. But Babar jumped and caught the ball with a thud.
