Srinagar: Australia outplayed India in the second ODI by 10 wickets at Visakhapatnam with Mitchell Starc shining with ball and Mitchell Marsh with bat but it was some magical moment from skipper Steve Smith that left everyone stunned.
Steve Smith took an outrageous catch while fielding at slips that is being termed as ‘catch of the century’.
While Starc led the damage with the ball, Smith rubbed more salt to India’s wounds by completing an brilliant catch.
Smith produced the effort in the 10th over of the innings, when he flew to his right and plucked an one-handed beauty to get rid of Hardik Pandya for 1 (3) off Sean Abbott’s bowling.
Sanjay Manjrekar, who was commentating at the moment, also asked his colleagues if they can name this as the “catch of the century”.
The ball by Abbott was slightly short of a good length, forcing Hardik Pandya to go for a drive. He does the same but with no feet movement and it takes a thick outside edge, which at one moment will go wide off the slip fielder.
However, Smith plunges to his right and stuns everyone with his Superman effort. Even Team India skipper Rohit Sharma’s reaction was caught on camera. He was totally stunned.
India got all out for 117 run total. In reply Australia completed chase in 11 overs without any loss of wicket.
