Babar, Imam and Abdullah’s stunning catches add pressure on Sri Lanka

As day four commenced, Lankan batters were eyeing to cruise past and set a considerable target for Pakistan; however, sharp catches by Pakistan’s fielders is what they didn’t see coming.

Today, three brilliant catches were taken as Sri Lanka lost their six batters by session two at 185. The first catch came from the skipper himself when Babar Azam took a sharp one-handed catch while fielding at first slip to dismiss Angelo Matthews, who walked back after scoring 64 (109).

The second catch was taken by Imam-ul-Haq when Dinesh Chandimal was dismissed at 28 runs. Chandimal tried to flick it low, but the short midwicket was equal to it, where Imam grabbed a sharp low catch by diving forward.Lastly, the third catch was brilliantly taken by Abdullah Shafique at the short leg of Sadeera Samarawickrama. Sadeera was dismissed at only 11 runs when Shafique moved to his left following the batter, dramatically shifting his weight to the right, and grabbed the catch with his right hand.

The ongoing series between Pakistan and Sri Lanka marks the beginning of the World Test Championship (WTC) cycle for both sides. Sri Lanka had scored 312 in the first innings. The hosts took control of Pakistan at one point, but they recovered to post 461 runs in their first innings.
