Mohammad Rizwan took an absolute beauty of a catch on Tuesday (May 14) in the third and final T20I between Pakistan and Ireland, taking place at Clontarf Cricket Club Ground, Dublin. 

In the process, Ireland, in the series decider, lost their former skipper Andrew Balbirnie, as Abbas Afridi got the massive wicket in a contest which the Men in Green wanted to win desperately to avoid embarrassment.

It was a length ball by Abbas Afridi during the 11th over of Ireland's innings, which Balbirnie tried to play over cover region. However, all he got was a huge top edge, and Rizwan, placed at third man, sprinted like a cheetah to complete a superb running catch.

At the time of writing this, Rizwan is shining with the bat as well. The wicket-keeper batter, who was in action as an outfielder in the series decider due to Azam Khan's presence, has raced to 43 off just 23 balls after coming to chase a challenging target of 179.

Earlier, Lorcan Tucker top-scored for Ireland, smashing 73 off 41 balls to take his side to 178/7.
