Australian superstar David Warner is widely known as one of the best fielders. His acrobatic skills, bullet throws and ability to turn the game on its head makes him one of the finest fielders in modern-day cricket.

Warner proved his brilliance once again when he took an absolute blinder to dismiss Sri Lanka skipper Dimuth Karunaratne on Day 1 of the ongoing first Test at Galle International Stadium. Besides, Warner’s exceptional catch also proved his game awareness.

It all happened in the 30th over bowled by off-spinner Nathan Lyon. The tweaker delivered with the round the wicket angle, and Karunaratne went forward to push it outside the line. The inside edge hits the pad and balloons towards the gully. While all the Australia players turned to appeal for a leg-before wicket, Warner, who was standing at first slip, dived forward to take a phenomenal catch.

The series is being played for the Warne-Muralitharan Trophy named after the two iconic bowlers – Shane Warne and Muttiah Muralitharan – in Test history with 1,508 combined wickets in the format. Notably, Warne passed away in March, earlier this year, from a heart attack, and a brief remembrance was held for the Aussie great before the start of the match.
