Be it any sport, it’s all about the delight of watching those out of the blues moments which gets etched in our memories for a lifetime and become a tale which we proudly proclaim to have witnessed in our times. These jaw-dropping moments are the ones which make any sport a heart-pumping and an exhilarating experience for the spectators.
As far as the wonderful game of cricket goes, it is rightly said that catches win matches. Fielding is a significant craft in the game which can turn the match on its head in a spur of the moment.
In the World T20 qualifier match between Ireland and Oman, the world came to a standstill when underdogs Oman handed over a dramatic defeat to the Irish boys. But during the match came an unforgettable moment of brilliance on the field as well which would be treasured by the fans for a long time.
Oman required 22 runs off the final 15 deliveries when the man in form, Ali pulled a short delivery which seemed going over the mid-wicket boundary for a six till the Irish fielder, Gary Wilson made a freakish attempt to pull the ball back into the playing area. Wilson in an acrobatic attempt leaped backwards and in an awe-inspiring manner brought the ball back into play and thereby saved 5 crucial runs for his side.
Take a look at the brilliant save here:
