Zlatan Ibrahimovic bicycle kick goal vs England Video: Cricketers who can challenge him

Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s bicycle-kick goal against England has led it to become the most searched video on the YouTube. The Swedish superstar scored an astonishing goal from a distance of about 30 yards against England in the Friend’s Arena on Wednesday.

Like the Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s goal, football has seen many such occasions where footballers have scored mind-boggling goals, leaving opposition exasperated and fans startled by their talent. Cricket, like football, too has had moments where both batsmen and bowlers have displayed extra-ordinary dexterity to leave opponents shocked.

Many such moments of brilliance come to mind. Let’s rewind and look back at 11 such special moments, which perhaps can compete with the sheer brilliance of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but on a cricket field:
