Oman cricketer took a stunning catch
Oman fielder Zeeshan Maqsood took a stunning catch

Though the WT20 2016 tournament is just in the initial stage, but it can be said that this catch surely takes a place in the catch of the tournament.

It was the match between Ireland and Oman where Oman was making a debut in the WT20 as well as any major tournament in the international cricket. It was the Group A encounter of Round 1 in WT20 2016 tournament which was played at Dharamsala on Wednesday night. After winning the toss, Ireland decided to bat first.

Ireland opener put a good start as their opening batsmen were looking dangerous. It was the 7th over of their innings when a stunning catch was taken.

Oman’s left-arm spinner Aamir Kaleem was bowling to Ireland opening batsman Paul Stirling. It was the 6.3 overs when Ireland batsman played a shot to the cover area and Oman fielder Zeeshan Maqsood was standing at short-cover. Zeeshan dived to his left side and took a stunning catch of a lofted inside-out shot by Sterling. Even Stirling couldn’t believe that he was out.

It was the first wicket for Oman in WT20 history and that came in terrific style.
