With India crowned champions for the seventh time on Friday night, the 14th edition of the Asia Cup didn’t fail to disappoint with plenty of drama on the field.

With the competition done and dusted, we take a look at the best catches from the event.

BEST CATCH

MASHRAFE MORTAZA AGAINST PAKISTAN (SUPER FOUR)

Fans inside the Sheikh Zayed Stadium and certainly around the world were simply left in awe when Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Mortaza pulled off a stunning catch to dismiss key batsman Shoaib Malik.

After losing three quick wickets, Shoaib was on track to score his third straight fifty but that came to an abrupt halt and in some fashion too. In the 21st over, the skipper dived full length to his left to catch Malik’s chip over mid-wicket. A key scalp that proved to be the turning point.

WORTHY MENTION

MANISH PANDEY VERSUS PAKISTAN

Manish Pandey wasn’t even meant to be on the field but came on as substitute and made a big impact to dismiss Sarfraz Ahmed. Kedar Jadhav got his man thanks to the efforts of an outstanding catch from Pandey at long-on.
