Ball-Boy Stuns with Spectacular Catch in Pakistan Super League

In a thrilling moment during the Pakistan Super League (PSL) match between Islamabad United and Peshawar Zalmi, a young ball-boy stole the show with an extraordinary catch beyond the boundary rope.

Despite the batter earning six runs for clearing the rope, it was the ball-boy's diving catch that captivated the crowd and earned praise from Kiwi star Colin Munro. Munro, positioned near the boundary where the catch was taken, was astonished by the child's effort and embraced him in a warm hug.

The incident occurred during a delivery from Islamabad pacer Faheem Ashraf, which Zalmi's Amer Jamal hit for a maximum. Earlier in the match, the same ball-boy had dropped a catch, but he redeemed himself with this spectacular effort.

The ball marginally crossed the rope, but the sight of a fielder celebrating a six while sharing a light-hearted moment with the ball-boy created a memorable moment.

Islamabad United emerged victorious in the match, restricting Peshawar Zalmi to 167/9 after scoring 196/4 themselves. Shadab Khan was named the player of the match.

In his post-match comments, Shadab Khan praised the team's performance and highlighted the importance of momentum on the Rawalpindi pitch. He also expressed confidence in the team's pace attack and the development of young players like Hunain.

The ball-boy's catch not only showcased his athleticism but also highlighted the spirit of sportsmanship and the camaraderie between players and support staff. It was a moment that will be remembered long after the match itself.
