England's ODI side is currently in the middle of perhaps it's most exciting period since 1992.

The thrilling performances they have delivered after the disastrous campaign at the 2015 World Cup have been nothing short of exceptional.

The batting has been devastating for the opponents rather than the fans, and the bowling has been clinical.

The only area lacking for England at the moment is their fielding, but you wouldn't guess that if you took two looks at Liam Plunkett's performances this summer. 

After pulling off an incredibly acrobatic diving catch in the first ODI at Lord's, Plunkett produced yet another stunning effort to remove in-form Pakistani batsman Sarfaraz Ahmed for just 12 in Thursday's fourth one-day international. 

You can see the catch in the video below, with the commentators describing it as 'outstanding' and 'incredible'.

The big 6ft 3" Yorkshire seamer has been an integral part of England's ODI success this summer, producing an incredible performance with the bat earlier in the summer to ensure England avoided defeat in the first ODI against Sri Lanka, clinching a tie in that particular game.

Although Plunkett's bowling was a bit expensive in the fourth ODI, taking 1-61 from nine overs at an economy rate of 6.77, this stunning catch to remove Sarfaraz was crucial to England restricting Pakistan to 247-8, which ended in a relatively comfortable run chase for the hosts, who took a commanding 4-0 lead in the series.

The final ODI of the series is in Cardiff on Sunday and Plunkett and co. will be hoping to complete the whitewash over Pakistan.
