In limited-overs cricket, fielding and catching play a massive part in the outcome of a game, and Australia have often epitomized the elite fieldsman-ship in cricket over the years. And on Sunday, it was on the showcase yet again as their captain led from the front with a brilliant piece of catching.

Amid India’s batting misery, there was an amazing fielding display from the Aussie captain Steve Smith causing further dismay for the home team.

Steve Smith takes an amazing catch to dismiss Hardik Pandya

As India were looking to build a partnership with Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya, the hosts were given a body blow as Hardik Pandya was dismissed for just 1 run. And Australia captain Steve Smith picked up a stunning catch to dismiss the Indian all-rounder.

In a Sean Abbott delivery, Hardik Pandya managed a thick outside edge, and Steve Smith, who was at the 1st slip, completed the catch in a stunning fashion. The Australia captain dived to his right and acrobatically held on to the ball which was flying off Pandya’s edge.

While grabbing the ball, Smith’s body was completely in the air and he managed to keep it within his grasp even after the contact with the surface. The commentators were stunned, Pandya himself was in shock as the visitors engaged themselves in celebration.

Smith had just a fraction of a second to react and the way he took that was nothing but an elite level of fielding display.
