The Men In Blue bounced back wonderfully by posting a total of 340 runs in the second match in Rajkot. Manish Pandey took a stunner to dismiss the last match’s centurion David Warner during the second ODI between India and Australia in Rajkot.
Earlier, the Australians opted to field first, had a mammoth total of 340 runs to chase. David Warner and Aaron Finch, the Australian openers who took the 1st match away from India by complete domination, were once again all-set to takedown India with their performance.
However, Manish Pandey’s strunner turned the tables and shattered all their hopes.

The stunning catch took place during the fourth over of the Australian innings, which was bowled by Mohammad Shami. On the second ball of the over, Mohammad Shami delivered a short one outside off stump, which was aggressively hit by David Warner on the off-side.
Initially, it looked that the ball will cross the boundary. However, Manish Pandey made his presence felt as he jumped to perfection to take a stunning catch.
David Warner who was sent back to the pavilion after scoring 15 runs, couldn’t make himself believe what he just saw as Manish Pandey made the catch look so easy. His expressions were caught in a video, that is now making rounds on the internet.
Here, watch the video of the stunning catch taken by Manish Pandey:
