Dwayne Bravo took one of the catches of the tournament when he held a chance to dismiss James Faulkner at the World T20—but he had to drop him first to make it all the more spectacular.

Faulkner misjudged Krishmar Santokie's delivery and sent it high toward mid-off. 

Bravo raced in from the boundary—a bit too far, as it turned out, and popped the catch up in the air.

With lightning-quick reflexes, he made amends.

As you can see in a second, slow-motion replay, the instincts required to rescue the catch were quite spectacular.
