New Delhi: Wicket-keeper batsman Dinesh Karthik was one the finest fielders to have played for India during the inaugural ICC World Twenty20 in 2007. Not only scoring runs and taking wickets is the key to win games, but also taking catches is an important aspect. As the saying goes - "Catches win matches".
The 31-year-old took a stunning catch to dismiss Graeme Smith during an India-South Africa encounter in Durban.
Smith, who is regarded as one of the best players to have played for Proteas, was left bewildered after this stunning take by Karthik at second slip.
It was the second over of South African innings, RP Singh steamed in and bowled an outswinger to Smith, who poked the ball only to deflect it towards the slip cordon.
Dinesh flew towards his left and caught the ball in mid-air to send South African skipper back to pavillion.
