David Warner, Tim Southee

WATCH: Tim Southee takes a one-hand stunner to dismiss David Warner at the MCG

New Zealand’s fast bowler Tim Southee is known for his brilliant out-swingers, but there is another aspect in which the right-hander has a mastery, and that is fielding.

In the past, Southee has taken some unbelievable catches, and on Day 1 of the Boxing Day Test, he yet again showed his brilliance on the field.


During the 22nd over of Australia’s first innings, Neil Wagner bowled a half wholly outside the off-stump. Warner pushed himself to play the ball without proper footwork, and it found the outside edge of his willow.

The edge flew into the slip cordon, where Southee grabbed a stunner with one hand. His outstanding effort drew praise from former Australian wicket-keeper Adam Gilchrist.


“(Ross) Taylor (at first slip) would’ve thought he was in the game, but Southee, the big fast bowler at second slip; that’s modern cricket for you,” said Gilchrist on Fox Cricket.
