What a stunning start to the day! India’s Rohit Sharma completed a stunning catch at second slip to get rid of Australia’s star batsman David Warner in the first over of the ongoing fourth test match. Warner became the victim of Siraj’s delivery. Siraj has now dismissed Warner twice in this series.
Ever since the series began, slip catching has been an issue for India, however, our Hitman Sharma made sure to give a positive start on day 1 of the Gabba Test. Team India managed to get rid of the dangerous David Warner on the last ball of the first over itself.

Mohammed Siraj bowled a stunning delivery, which pitched around the middle and moved away from Warner. The left-handed batsman could only manage to poke at the delivery and edged it. Initially, it looked like that the ball will drop before making it to the slips, where Rohit Sharma was standing.
However, Rohit had some other plans. He dived stunningly to his right and completed the catch in front of the slip fielder. Sharma’s fielding effort must have filled the team with confidence.
The video of the stunning catch has been going viral on social media. The video of the stunning catch was uploaded by Cricket on BT Sport on Twitter Here, watch the video:
