Catches win matches! This statement holds utmost truth in T20 cricket. We’ve witnessed numerous instances where a single brilliant catch has influenced the outcome of a match. A prime example is the T20 World Cup 2007 final. Sreesanth’s catch in the last over clinched the trophy for India. Without that catch, India would have been searching for their maiden T20 World Cup title.
