(Reuters Photo)HIGHLIGHTSSarfaraz Ahmed dismissed Ross Taylor with his flying catch behind the wicketsPakistan are facing New Zealand in Birmingham to stay alive in contention for the semi-finals spotPakistan are currently placed 7th on the World Cup points tableSo far in the World Cup 2019, sloppy ground fielding, dropped catches and missed run-outs have been the highlighting features of the Pakistan team.Before facing New Zealand at Edgbaston on Wednesday, Pakistan had dropped 13 catches in the tournament. Against South Africa alone at Lord’s, they had dropped 6 of them. When they faced Australia, Asif Ali first dropped Aaron Finch at slips and later also popped out a sitter at the third man providing David Warner with an opportunity to score a century.Having said all this, it would not be wrong to quote Ramiz Raza here, that Pakistan’s fielding has been “rubbish” in this World Cup.For their poor show on the field, Pakistan have become the favourite subject to the meme game on the internet. From the skipper Sarfarz Ahmed’s yawning on the field to his team’s burger party ahead of the India clash, Pakistan have found themselves at the recieving end of flak from their fans.Recently, a video had also surfaced where skipper Sarfaraz was seen walking in a mall in England with his son when a fan stopped him and asked why he was fat like a pig.However, it looks like, Sarfaraz Ahmed has finally silent the crictics after taking a magnificent catch during their match against New Zealand in Birmingham where the Asian giants are fighting to stay in contention for a semi-final spot.During the 9th over of the match, Sarfaraz Ahmed pulled off a Jhonty Rhodes behind the wicket to dismiss Ross Taylor for 3. When Taylor got a thick edge of Shaheen Shah Afridi’s full length delivery, Sarfaraz Ahmed threw himself full-length to his right, flying like superman and plucked the ball to give Afridi his second wicket.advertisementAs Sarfaraz took the brilliant catch, the internet was once again flooded with memes, some praising his efforts while others taking a dig at his yawn during India’s match.Sarfaraz ne catch nahi match pakra hai…Time pe soney ke faidey!#PakvNZ diya (@pukhtana_tweets) June 26, 20191. how others see the ball2. how sarfaraz see the ball #NZvsPAK singh (@__ayyushi) June 26, 2019The Sarfaraz The SarfarazNZ expected NZ got (@Nishkarsh1108) June 26, 2019#NZvPAK #PAKvNZ #CWC19*Pakistan Team Taking two early wickets*Me : Okay !!*Pakistani players giving their 100 percent effort in fielding*Me : okay !!*Sarfaraz takes the catch which was almost in the first slip*Me (@ubaidiqbalkhan) June 26, 2019Sarfaraz To Shoaib Akhtar : Ab bol na Unfit Sarfu you beautyWhat a catch #CWC19 #pakvnz #NZvPAK #pakvsNZ #NZvsPAK (@batballlover) June 26, 2019*Sarfaraz CatchReminds: (@HaffiSpeaks) June 26, 2019Shoaib Akhter after watching SArfaraz’s catch Akram (@QariaAkram) June 26, 2019Sarfaraz later also caught skipper Kane Williamson behind the wickets as New Zealand lost their 5th wicket for 84 runs.Also See For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter for Sports news, scores and updates.Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?
