In the last over of the match, which Baroda lost by four wickets with two balls to spare, Yusuf took the catch to dismiss Darshan Misal, off the bowling of Atit Shett.
Yusuf's younger brother Irfan took to Twitter to share a video of the catch, with a caption which read: "Is it a bird ? No this is @yusuf_pathan Great catch today lala.All ur hard work in pre season is paying off."
Soon, Afghanistan captain Rashid Khan, who is also Yusuf's teammate at Indian Premier League franchise SunRisers Hyderabad, for the catch calling it an absolute stunner hailed the take as a stunner.
"Absolutely stunner @iamyusufpathan Bhai. Ye Pathan k hath hai thakur," Khan replied to Irfan's tweet.
Absolutely stunner @iamyusufpathan Bhai . Ye Pathan k hath hai thakur ðÂÂÂðÂÂÂ— Rashid Khan (@rashidkhan_19) November 8, 2019
Irfan then replied to Khan saying: "Haha sahi kaha pathano ke hath or wrist mein jaadu hay..."
India wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha, who himself is known for taking stunning catches, joined the conversation.

Yusuf, however, failed to contribute with the bat, managing a second-ball duck as Baroda set a 150-run target, which they failed to defend.
Both Yusuf and Irfan are all-rounders and have represented India. Yusuf, the elder brother played 57 ODIs while Irfan played 29 Tests and 120 ODIs.
