During the ENG vs AUS World Cup 2023 match in Ahmedabad, David Willey’s innings came to an end when Adam Zampa, stationed at fine leg, pulled off an incredible diving catch.
In the ongoing England vs Australia World Cup 2023 match in Ahmedabad during the 43rd over, David Willey got dismissed thanks to a fantastic catch by Adam Zampa. Josh Hazlewood bowled a short delivery from around the stumps, aimed at Willey’s body. Willey attempted to hit it high towards deep backward square leg. In a remarkable display of athleticism, Zampa, who was stationed at fine leg, sprinted towards the ball, covering a good distance, and made a diving effort to snatch it with both hands. This brilliant catch ended Willey’s innings, and England found themselves struggling at 216/8.
Zampa has already secured 3 crucial wickets, dismissing the dangerous Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, and Moeen Ali. During the first innings, Australia was struggling at 241-7 in the 43.4th over when Zampa joined the action, providing a late boost with his quick 29 runs off 19 balls, helping Australia set a challenging total of 286 in 49.3 overs.
Marnus Labuschagne was the top run-scorer with 71 runs off 83 balls, while Cameron Green fell just three runs short of a half-century. Steve Smith contributed 44 runs, and Marcus Stoinis added 35 runs in 32 deliveries, all contributing to Australia’s solid total.
England’s bowlers, led by Chris Woakes with four wickets, were effective. Mark Wood and Adil Rashid took two wickets each, while David Willey and Liam Livingstone chipped in with one each.
Australia seems well on track for a top-four spot, with many key players in great form. England’s campaign, however, has been lackluster in this tournament.
