Martin Guptill, Steve Smith

ICC World Cup 2019 – WATCH: Martin Guptill takes a sensational catch to dismiss Steve Smith

After dropping two catches in the match, Martin Guptill redeems himself with a sensational catch to send Steve Smith packing in the World Cup league fixture between New Zealand and Australia at Lord’s Cricket Ground on Saturday.

It all happened in the 12th over of the match. A well-executed short-pitched delivery from New Zealand pacer Lockie Ferguson was aimed at Smith’s body and the right-hander shuffled a bit before going for the pull.


However, Guptill was stationed at leg gully and took a stunning one-handed catch to get rid of the former Aussies skipper for 5 (8).

This was also the second instance in this tournament that Smith fell to a blinder, after previously losing his wicket against the Windies to a superhuman effort by Sheldon Cottrell.
