"We were playing the Champions Trophy final against India and during the presentation, Yuvraj Singh, Virat Kohli and myself were laughing". Gayle skied a ball and both Malik and Ajmal took positions under the ball. However, a miscommunication between them led to one of the funniest dropped catches in the history of cricket.

Shoaib Malik attended a show named Voice of Cricket, where he revealed a lot of exciting incidents.

Yet, after the match, the Indian and Pakistani players were seen gelling along on the ground and sharing a few laughs during the presentation ceremony.

Virat Kohli has asked him what Saeed Ajmal told him after the floored catch, to which Shoaib Malik replied, "That catch was Chris Gayle's". Woh tha bhi Chris Gayle ka catch. "Virat Kohli asked me to reveal the words of Saeed Ajmal after the drop catch", Shoaib Malik said. "Main usko kaha, 'yaar! aapne joh yeh position banayi, ki mein catch karne laga hu, toh aap phir haath kyun peeche kar liye?", Malik said he asked Ajmal.

He then blanked the Brewers in the sixth and seventh as the Dodgers built a lead with RBI singles from Max Muncy and Puig. Woodruff, the reliever who homered against Kershaw in Game 1, walked following Arcia's one-out single to begin the rally.

"Catch to khair gir gaya us waqt". Aur woh hame peet bhi rahe the.

Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Malik recalled the time when he was pictured having a laugh with India captain Virat Kohli and Yuvraj Singh after end of Champions Trophy final at the Oval, last year.

Reminiscing Ajmal's statement, Shoaib said, "Woh kheta hai, mein aapke neeche iss liye baitha hua tha ki agar aap se catch chhot jayi, toh mein use neech se pakad lu". "(He said I sat down under you so if you drop the catch I will catch from beneath)".

International Cricket Council (ICC) had posted a video on Twitter with the hashtag #SpiritOfCricket in which Malik was seen sharing something with Yuvraj and Kohli, with other younger Pakistani cricketers around, and all of them were seen laughing over the conversation.
