ICC Asks Whose Catch Was Better, MS Dhoni or Safaraz Ahmed? Fans Tweeted Their Opinion

India vs West Indies match brought us some of greatest moments in the games including Shami’s inswing delivery leaving Shai Hope’s defense rattle; the ball hits the wicket with a perfect seam position making Hope shellshocked. The second one was MS Dhoni’s unbelievable catch behind the wicket that even left King Kohli amazed. Dhoni took a blinder catch to dismiss Carlos Brathwaite which was bowled by Jasprit Bumrah. However, there was a huge debate in the social media, as ICC posted a catch of Dhoni alongside Sarfaraz Ahmed catch which he held previously to dismiss Ross Taylor.

ICC puts Dhoni and Sarfaraz’s catch on a debate

Windies had already lost five of their batsmen for just 107 in 26 overs against India chasing a target of 269 on Thursday. The bowl got older and Jasprit Bumrah was brought into the attack, the in-form Carlos Brathwaite was on strike.


A delivery bowled by Bumrah from wider of the crease and Brathwaite had no option but to follow the ball with bat snicked through. Dhoni stretched and dives to his right and takes a one-handed stunning catch. Brathwaite goes for just 1 off 5 balls. Windies’ run chase dreams shattered and TV screens started replaying Dhoni’s exceptional catch on loop.

Dhoni took an unbelievable catch to dismiss Carlos Brathwaite as the Indian wicket kipper jumped stretching to his right and took a one-handed catch to dismiss the Windies batsman. On the other hand, previously, Sarfaraz had taken a similar catch to get rid of New Zealand’s Ross Taylor.

The ICC put the two videos together and asked the fans to give their opinion as to whose catch was better. ICC’s Twitter post read: “Dive and conquer, who did it better?”


This tweet opened up a big debate between cricket fans, as they supported their best opinion amongst these two wicketkeepers who were best in their game. Indian fans hailed Dhoni’s catch as the best effort, while Pakistani fans were impressed with their skipper’s stunner.
