Watch! Seven screamers from the WT20

The World Twenty20 in India saw a few absolute stunners in the field, most of which actually came from the smaller teams, so here are seven of the finest examples of 'safe hands'.

They're in no particular order, but the last one is the best, in our humble opinions.

Zimbabwe's Sikandar Raza took this diving effort to remove Scotland's Kyle Coetzer during the early stages.

Scotland's Michael Leask turned an easy catch into a stunner when he acrobatically fixed his own mistake on the boundary. Another split second and he'd have been ridiculed, not lauded.

Bangladesh all-rounder Soumya Sarkar held his nerve and composure to bunt the ball back into play, before keeping his feet away from the rope and snaffling the rebound.

England's Joe Root took a crucial catch against Sri Lanka, in a match his side needed to win to advance to the semi-finals. Sri Lanka were on track for victory, and this catch derailed them.

The Netherlands' Pieter Seelar took a blinder in the outfield, running and diving full stretch to remove Ireland's Kevin O'Brien.

This effort by India's Hardik Pandya is notable because of the effort it took to hold onto it. The all-rounder found himself face first in the turf, the ball not firmly secured yet, but he managed to cling onto it.

We've saved the best for last. This catch by Oman's Zeeshan Maqsood could well be the catch of the year, as it will take some beating. The ball, hit by Ireland's Paul Stirling, was already past Maqsood when he plucked it from the air.
