See David Warner One-Handed Blinder, Which Left His Own Teammate Stunned
Dhananjaya de Silva was dismissed by David Warner with the help of a spectacular catch, which even left Ashton Agar speechless during Sri Lanka vs. Australia match.
David Warner, the Australia opener, is renowned for both his outstanding athleticism on the field and his heroics in the batter’s box. The 35-year-old has made a number of incredible catches, and on Tuesday, he made another one during Australia’s victory over Sri Lanka in the first ODI of their three-match series. Dhananjaya de Silva attempted to chip it over mid-on in the 16th over of Sri Lanka’s innings against Ashton Agar. Unfortunately for him, David Warner was fielding there, and the Australia great sprinted to his right while raising his left arm to catch the ball and dismiss the Sri Lankan hitter.
Agar jumped up in excitement at the catch and then shook his head in bewilderment. The catch was that good.
