Batting first against Australia, Dawid Malan staged a recovery for England with a century after the three lions were reduced to 66/4. Malan seemed to be in pursuit of a big knock in Adelaide but was running out of partners at the other end. Liam Dawson came out to bat after the fall of five wickets but the possibility of him building a partnership was cut short by a superb fielding effort from Ashton Agar featuring a lightning-quick direct hit that left the spectators in awe.

Cameron Green, bowling the 31st over, delivered one outside off and Liam Dawson stroked it square of the wicket. Ashton Agar who was stationed at the deep backward point had no intention of letting the ball go past him. The all-rounder pounced on the Kookaburra rapidly and executed a rocket throw in one smooth action.

Liam Dawson, despite having taken a start as soon as he played the ball, was caught miles away from the crease at the non-striker’s end courtesy of the magic from Agar and his throw hitting the bull’s eye. The throw reminded fans of Australian legend Ricky Ponting and his heroic fielding antics, triggering Twitter to heap with praise for Ashton Agar’s commendable highlight play.

Ashton Agar’s best on the field came in the 45th over when Pat Cummins bowled a short delivery to centurion Dawid Malan and the batter pulled it towards mid-wicket where Agar was placed. The shot was going for a certain six but Agar then flicked on his superhuman fielding mode.
