UAE's Rameez Shehzad Does A Ben Stokes, Grabs A One-handed Blinder
United Arab Emirates (UAE) batsman Ramez Shehzad pulled off a spectacular one-handed catch against Scotland to get rid of George Munsey on Wednesday in the ICC T20 World Cup qualifiers. Rameez Shehzad's catch took cricket fans a few months behind when England's Ben Stokes pulled off the same catch against South Africa in the World Cup. Fans couldn't wonder and not debate about who did it better - Stokes or Shehzad. However, Rameez Shehzad's efforts went in vain as Scotland won the match comfortably by 90 runs. Rameez Shehzad, who was standing near the boundary line, leaped to the air to grab a one-handed blinder, in what looked like a ditto remake of Ben Stokes taking the catch.

Relive Ben Stokes' magical moment
It happened in the 35th over of the Proteas run chase at the World Cup which was bowled by Adil Rashid and Andile Phehlukwayo was on strike. On the very first delivery, Rashid tossed one in the middle while the latter went for a slog sweep. However, he found Stokes on the boundary, who stretched his right hand up the ball and moved to his left to take an unbelievable catch. The catch left the Proteas batsman shell-shocked as South Africa found themselves in even deeper trouble at 180/7. The all-rounder's catch was the biggest talking point on social media. Even the cricket experts hailed Stokes' brilliant catch by calling it as the 'Catch of the tournament'.
