In the 2023 World Cup match between India and Bangladesh, Mohammad Mahmudullah pulled off an incredible catch to dismiss Shubman Gill. He positioned himself at the boundary and made a remarkable catch.
This wicket happened in the 20th over of India’s batting innings. Spinner Mehidy Hasan Miraz bowled a shorter delivery, and Shubman Gill attempted to attack it. However, Gill’s timing was off, and the ball went towards deep mid-wicket.
Mahmudullah made an excellent judgment to prevent the ball from carrying him over the boundary. He maintained his position within the playing field without crossing the boundary ropes. Bangladesh’s remarkable catch reduced India to 132/2 in the 19th over. You can watch Mahmudullah’s incredible catch below:
