Former Australia skipper Steve Smith is considered to have the safest pair of hands. He showed it once again on the third day of the fourth and final Test against India by taking a spectacular catch.
It was the 61st over of India’s innings when middle-order batsman Mayank Agarwal tried to attack fast bowler Josh Hazlewood but ended up getting an outside edge. Smith, who was fielding at second slip, grabbed a stunner in two attempts.
The ball was over Smith’s head and he did well to grab it on the first attempt before the red leather popped out of his hands. On the second chance, Smith caught it to send back Agarwal for 38.
