Pakistan cricket team has never been acknowledged for its fielding. Over the years, they have produced dominating bowlers and some word-class batsmen. But when it comes to fielding, they are way behind as compared to other international teams. On this occasion, however, Mohammad Rizwan has broken the myth with his superb effort at backward square leg.

During the third One-Day International (ODI) between Pakistan and Zimbabwe from the recently concluded series at Harare, which was also the decider of the three-match series, Zimbabwe were batting first and collapsed after a solid start. They were precariously placed for 161 for nine inside 39 overs. On the fifth delivery of the 39th over from Shoaib Malik, which was straying on the leg stump, John Nyumbu attempted a sweep short only to get a top edge. The ball went flying towards fine leg but Mohammad Rizwan who was patrolling the backward square area had other ideas. He charged in and dived to grab the ball with both the hands ensuring a safe catch. It was a remarkable effort which led to the dismissal of Nyumbu.

Zimbabwe were dismantled for a mere score of 161 in their 50 overs.  Pakistan won the contest by seven wickets and with this the series as well.
