Over the years, the game of cricket as seen many extraordinary catches, however, the best ones are the catches that are taken at the slip region because fielders have to react instantly. And the fans got to witness one of the absolute gems during the second Test match between Australia and New Zealand at the MCG.
Apart from bowling terrific out-swingers to the batsmen, Tim Southee is known for hitting big shots as well. However, it is his fielding that never fails to leave the fans surprised. Time and again, he has given us some of the most incredible catches.
Tim Southee pulled off an absolute one-handed stunner to dismiss David Warner packing at the best during the second Test match between Australia and New Zealand.
David Warner was looking great in his form until Tim Southee produced a screamer at second slip to send David back to pavilion. The terrific catch happened during the 22nd over of Australia’s first innings when Neil Wagner delivered outside the off-stump and David Warner attempted a drive through the covers but failed miserably as the ball landed straight into the hands of Tim Southee.
At second slip, Tim Southee outstretched his right hand, grabbed the ball, juggled it and finally claimed it safely in his hands as he himself hit the ground.
The stunner heaped praises for Southee from every corner. Cricket fraternity and fans were left in awe of the stunner produced by him. The video that was posted by the official Twitter handle of Cricket Australia has been going viral on social media, leaving people mesmerized by it.
