Social media users are raving about a video of Multan Sultan’s captain Mohammad Rizwan and fast bowler Shahnawaz Dhahani in which they’re both trying to take a catch during Thursday night’s match against Peshawar Zalmi.
It was not an average attempt to take a catch. Things could have gone horribly wrong for the fielding side.
Thankfully, they did not.
The video shows both the fielders with their eyes on the ball collide into each other full force. What surprised people was that Dahani somehow managed to cling to the ball even after Rizwan practically tackled him rugby-style on the field.
“Keeper wants it, keeper wants it, keeper, oooh,” said commentator Pommie Mbangwa on air as the two collided. “Dahani has taken it in the end. And man, that could have gone horribly wrong.”
Rizwan not realizing that Dahani had taken the catch took a moment’s pause in disappointment however, celebrations broke out when Dahani went to take him in for a hug and Rizwan realized that they had indeed taken out the batsman, Kamran Akmal.
The duo has won the hearts of many PSL viewers with this endearing display.
“Only Rizwan and Dahani could have laughed at this collision,” said one user.
Rizwan has been dubbed “superman” by many users.
Others praised Dahani for his strong hold on the ball.
Multan Sultan won the match against Peshawar Zalmi by 42 runs, registering their sixth consecutive win the 16th match of the PSL.
