During the third and final T20I of ongoing Australia’s tour of South Africa in Cape Town, Australia fast bowler Mitchell Starc bowled an absolute peach of a delivery to make early inroads into the South African innings.
It all happened on the fourth delivery of the first over when Proteas captain Quinton de Kock looked clueless against a ripper from Starc.
Having pitched the delivery on the middle-stump, Starc generated the right amount of pace to beat de Kock and hit his stumps.
The dismissal was a replica of what unfolded in the first T20I, where Starc had bowled QDK with a similar kind of delivery.
Starc ended up as the ‘Man of the Match’ in Cape Town by claiming three wickets for 23 runs, including the one of veteran Faf du Plessis, who played a rash shot outside-off and gifted his wicket.
Earlier, half-centuries from openers David Warner (57) and captain Aaron Finch (55) saw Australia putting up a good show with their bat to make 193 for 5 in 20 over.
Australia clinched the series 2-1 with a 97-run victory over the hosts.
