Dinesh Karthik took a stunner to dismis Mahmudullah.

In the seventh over of the warm-up match between India and Bangladesh, Dinesh Karthik stuck out his one hand to pull off a sensational catch to dismiss of the bowling of Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Bhuvnshwar Kumar got the ball to swing away from Mahmudullah and induced the edge. The ball was flying between Karthik and the first slip but the wicketkeeper flung himself to his right and plucked the ball to complete a stunning catch. With some gap between him and the fielder at second slip, there was some gap and without Karthik’s heroics, the ball would have quite easily gone off to. The crowd absolutely loved his feat.

For someone who has always remained in the shadows of his fellow superstars, this catch against Bangladesh was the perfect answer to silence those who questioned his ability with the gloves.
