Steve Smith plucks a one-handed stunner in the slips to send Hardik Pandya packing in the second ODI in Vizag
India and Australia are currently locking horns in the second ODI in Visakhapatnam. The visitors won the toss and decided to bowl first in a game, which will be a series deciding. They are currently 1-0 down in the series and with the way they have put India under pressure in the ongoing game, it’s fair to say that 1-1 is on the cards.
Mitchell Starc has yet again put under pressure and has bowled impeccable line and lengths to put his team on the top. The left-arm pacer has 4 wickets in his 6 overs and has left India tottering at 49/5. Sean Abbott has complimented him well and picked the wicket of Hardik Pandya.
However, the credit for the wicket more so goes to skipper Steve Smith. It was during the 10th over when Abbott bowled a seam-up delivery that was short of a good length. Hardik Pandya pushed at it and the ball took the thick inside edge. It seemed that it would evade the first slip fielder but Smith took a screamer. He out in full-length dive to his right and flew parallel to the ground to stretch as much as he can and took a one-handed catch.
