The Twenty20 World Cup is only just getting started, but Black Cap Devon Conway may have already taken the catch of the tournament.
In his first game at a World Cup, Conway flew through the air to take a diving, full-length catch to his left to dismiss Mohammad Hafeez, leaving the Pakistani batsman and fans in the crowd stunned.
The sensational grab was quickly branded as a 'superhero' catch on social media.
The spectacular snare reduced Pakistan to 63-3 after 11 overs in their chase of 135 for victory, but unfortunately for Conway and the Black Caps, it wasn't enough to deny Pakistan, who eventually claimed a five-wicket win to move to 2-0 at the Cup.

Conway had earlier struggled for his best form with the bat, mustering 27 off 24 balls, with the Black Caps now needing a victory over India on Monday morning to keep their Cup campaign alive.
