Former South Africa captain Faf du Plessis and middle-order batsman David Miller joined hands to take a sensational catch in the second T20I against Australia at St. George’s Park in Port Elizabeth on Sunday.
During the game, Du Plessis and Miller combined for a brilliant boundary-line catch to remove Mitchell Marsh. It all happened in the 17th over of Australia’s chase when Marsh tried to whack the slower ball delivery by Lungi Ngidi for a maximum, but Du Plessis had some other plans.
Du Plessis managed to jump at the right time to take the catch and threw it back to Miller before falling over. Miller, who ran from the other side, quickly reacted and dived forward to complete the catch.
