In the ongoing Asia Cup 2023 encounter between India and Bangladesh, the Indian team enjoyed a stellar start after winning the toss and opting to bowl first. The Men in Blue wasted no time in putting immense pressure on the Bangladeshi side. Mohammed Shami and Shardul Thakur displayed remarkable bowling prowess, wreaking havoc in the opposition’s top order. In just 5.4 overs, Bangladesh found themselves in a precarious position at 28 for three.
As Anamul Haque became the third wicket to fall, stabilizing the innings fell upon the experienced duo of Mehidy Hasan Miraz and skipper Shakib Al Hasan. Together, they sought to build a partnership to counter the early setbacks. However, despite their valiant efforts to steady the ship, their resilience eventually crumbled when Axar Patel produced a game-changing moment. A spectacular fielding effort by Rohit Sharma resulted in the crucial dismissal of Miraz, giving a significant blow to Bangladesh’s hopes.

Diving catch by Rohit Sharma at slip
In the last ball of the 14th over, Axar unleashed a deceptive delivery, a shorter one, just around the fourth stump line. The ball had a touch of grip and spun away, luring Mehidy Hasan into attempting a delicate nudge. As fate would have it, the ball grazed the outside edge of Mehidy’s bat, resulting in a delicate deflection.
The ball headed towards the Indian skipper positioned at slip. Rohit dove to his right with remarkable agility and lightning reflexes, stretching his body to the fullest and got his fingers underneath the ball precisely the right instant.
This sensational catch unfolded when Bangladesh was beginning to contemplate a rebuilding phase. The introduction of spin, personified by Axar’s delivery and Rohit ‘s brilliance in the field, outwitted their hopes to post a mammoth total on the scoreboard.
