“He is nearing 38. Some say he is 45. After watching this catch, I would say he is 32,” this comment from the commentary box perfectly summed up the emotions of every cricket fan as Shahid Afridi grabbed a sensational catch for Karachi Kings on Friday against Quetta Gladiators in the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL).

The former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi took a blind at the boundary to dismiss Umar Amin. The batsman hit a length ball from Muhammad Irfan with a straight bat and it looked like it was going to clear the long-on boundary. However, ‘Lala’ had other ideas.

When everyone thought the ball was sailing over the rope, Afridi leaped up and stuck his right hand up and grabbed the ball with one hand, but his momentum was taking him over. So, he tossed it up in the air and then ran back inside to complete the catch.

Fans on Twitter lauded Shadid Afridi after watching the catch.
