Pakistan’s wicketkeeper Mohammad Rizwan stunned the viewers with his athleticism on the field during the National T20 Cup match between Sindh and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
Fielding standard has increased with cricketers more focused on fitness and giving equal time to all departments to excel on the field. Rizwan nearly pulled off an unbelievable catch when he took a dive after covering around 35-40 yards.

Rizwan came from extra cover to catch the ball which went straight up in the sky in the 19th over of Sindh’s innings. The batsmen Anwar Ali was surprised with the effort and so were Rizwan’s teammates.
“It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s Superman No It’s @iMRizwanPak”, shared the official Twitter account of the Pakistan Cricket Board.
