Excellent catch by Pant

18.3 over for Rabada to Finch, OUT, a screamer from Pant. But we'll need the third umpire's confirmation. So let's talk about the problems the wicketkeeper faced. He has to run almost three-fourth the distance to the fine leg boundary.
He has to deal with a swirling delivery, always moving away from him, and towards Shahbaz Nadeem, who is only feet away from him. He shouts he wants the catch, he dives forward as the ball comes down, and it sticks in both hands. Makes sure to keep it away from the turf as well and the third umpire agrees. Oh, did I mention all of this happened because Finch is hurried on a hook and top edged it?
