PAK vs SA – WATCH: Imran Butt takes a brilliant catch in slips to dismiss Aiden Markram

Imran Butt, Aiden Markram

Pakistan’s Imran Butt took an excellent catch to dismiss South African opener Aiden Markram early on Day 1 of the first Test making his debut game a memorable one.

Imran was standing in the slip cordon when he took a low-lying catch, helping Pakistan pacer Shaheen Afridi getting his first wicket of the match on a pitch, which is believed to be a batting paradise.

“An unforgettable debut already for Imran But,” the International Cricket Council (ICC) captioned their video post on Twitter.
