The veteran Australian cricketer, David Warner has often been seen pulling off special things with the bat regardless of the format he is playing in and when he doesn’t have one in hand, he tends to prove his worth on the field and make a difference there. Australia benefitted from this tendency Warner pulled off what could go down as one of the catches of the year to dismiss Sri Lanka’s Dhananjaya de Silva in the first ODI between the two teams in Kandy.

Dhananjaya came down the track to smack the ball bowled by the Australia spinner Ashton Agar and looked to have hit it well enough for the ball to fly over Warner at mid-on. However, the former Australia vice-captain managed to stick his right hand up and caught it one-handed. He even managed to land on two feet after all of it.

Here is the video of the fantastic catch by David Warner:

Ashton Agar jumped with joy before going towards David Warner with his hands on his head as he couldn’t believe that the catch was taken. However, it seemed that captain Aaron Finch was not too surprised that his longtime opening partner has pulled off the stunner.

Pat Cummins, Australia’s captain in Test cricket, has been included in the team for the first ODI, and hence he played his first ODI match after November 2020. Sri Lanka, who lose the preceding three-match T20I series 2-1, won the toss and chose to bat first.

Dhananjaya’s wicket was their third to fall in the match and they had scored 134 runs at the time in 25.5 overs. Kusal Mendis and Charith Asalanka have since then put up a steady partnership for the fifth wicket and taken Sri Lanka close to the 200-run mark.
