WATCH: Mitchell Santner pulls-off a blinder to dismiss Ollie Pope

There are certain moments when a cricketer bestrides in all departments, and Mitchell Santner had such a moment.

During the opening Test match against England, Santner first scored a ton, then took three wickets and grabbed a jaw-dropping catch.

In 77th over of the second innings, English batsman Ollie Pope who was batting at six runs guided a full toss delivery bowled by Neil Wagner towards cover when Santner pulled-off a ripper. While fielding at the short cover, he made a full-stretched dive to send Pope back to the pavilion.

Here’s the video:

Meanwhile, Kiwis thrashed England by an innings and 65 runs in the Bay Oval Test to take 1-0 lead in the series.
