Video: Tim Paine Takes A Stunning One-Handed Blinder To Get Rid Of Cheteshwar Pujara

Tim Paine Takes A Stunning One-Handed Blinder To Get Rid Of Cheteshwar Pujara: The second day of the ongoing 2nd of the 4-test match series started with a good note for team India. Shubman Gill and Cheteshwar Pujara resumed the game brilliantly for team India. Luck seemed to be on India’s side as Gill lived a charmed life and was dropped twice. Infact, Australian skipper Tim Paine also failed to complete a catch to dismiss Gill.


Shubman Gill played a powerful knock of 45 runs off 65 balls, smashing 8 fours. He played each ball with an array of good shots. However, a rare ball caught Gill after he went for a loose drive and was caught behind by Tim Paine with an easy catch.

On the other hand, Cheteshwar Pujaraa played with his soft hands throughout his knock. However, Australian skipper and wicketkeeper Paine took a stunning one-hand blinder to dismiss Cheteshwar Pujara.

Pujara once again became the victim of Pat Cummins and was dismissed with a delivery similar to in the 1st Test.

Pujara was playing in his trademark style throughout the innings until an in-angler delivery by Pat Cummins. The ball went straight off the pitch and touched the edge of Pujara’s bat. The ball traveled quickly and Paine just went for it with a full-stretched dive to his right.

That stunning dive was just enough to grab a superb low catch and to send Pujara back to the pavilion for 17 runs off 70 balls. The video of the same was uploaded by Cricket Australia via their official Twitter account.
