Pakistan vs Australia’s 2nd T20 at Dubai was a match that will live long in the memory – well, at least for the next couple of weeks, until our collective memory is wiped by the World T20 in Sri Lanka.
The match finished in a tie, and sparked to life in the first innings, with two Superman-style efforts from Australia’s Daniel Christian.
The Deccan Charger warmed up with this full-length catch, with his wrong hand, parallel to the ground…
Christian followed this up with a piece of fielding at deep midwicket that can only be described as Steve Smith-esque…
Sprinting to his left on the boundary rope, watch the ball go over the rope, before Christian dives to pull off a ridiculous reverse one-handed stop.
Combined with a useful performance with the ball, Dan Christian might have just played himself into Australia’s preferred first XI!
Australia may have their struggles at the moment but there’s no doubt they are the best fielding side in the world.
