Indian fast bowler Sreesanth has seen many legendary cricketers in his career. He is one of the few cricketers who have won both T20 and ODI World Cups for his country. He was part of the Indian team in the 2007 T20 World Cup and 2011 ODI World Cup. He was at the center in the match between India and Pakistan during the T20 World Cup. In this match, Sreesanth gave the wicket of Sohail Tanvir for 44 runs in four overs. Sreesanth recently told what was his most pressing moment in the final match of 2007 T20 World Cup.

His fielding was discussed more than his bowling in the final match between India and Pakistan of the 2007 T20 World Cup. Especially that catch of Misbah ul Haq, due to which Indian cricket team created history. Pakistan needed six runs off four balls. Misbah played the shot and Sreesanth helped Team India create history by taking a superb catch at fine leg. Although many people have not forgotten that catch even today, according to 37-year-old Sreesanth, he was more than caught by Misbah, Shahid Afridi He was under pressure during the catch. Recalling that incident, Sreesanth said in a conversation with the cricketer that Irfan Pathan knew that Shahid Afridi would hit the ball in the air and he had already asked me to be ready to take a catch.

Sreesanth told, "It was more difficult for me to catch Shahid Afridi. Irfan Pathan told me that Afridi will definitely hit for six, the ball will come for long off and he will be out in the very first ball. You have to catch. He had already seen what was going to happen. He had taken the wicket of Afridi many times. Luckily the ball went up in the air, and I caught it. Regarding the catch of Misbah, Sreesanth said that while the ball was coming towards me, I was not really thinking about the catch at that time, but I was thinking of stopping him from taking two runs. He said, "At the time of Misbah's wicket, I was thinking of diving right or left to stop the ball, so that Misbah could not take two runs. I was not thinking about catching the ball. Even Dhoni Bhai had said in an interview that Misbah's catch was the most pressing catch in the history of Indian cricket. But for me, Afridi's catch in that match was the most pressing catch of my career.
