In the ongoing AUS vs. SL World Cup match, David Warner’s remarkable running catch off a delivery by Adam Zampa dismissed the in-form Sri Lankan skipper, Kusal Mendis.
In the ongoing 14th match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023, Australia is facing off against Sri Lanka at the Ekana Stadium in Lucknow. Both teams, having suffered two consecutive losses, are eager to secure their first win in the tournament.
Sri Lanka won the toss and opted to bat first, looking to set a formidable target. Pathum Nissanka and Kusal Perera provided a strong start, with Nissanka contributing 61 runs from 67 balls and Perera crafting an impressive 78 from 82 balls. Sri Lanka appeared to be in a promising position until Kusal Mendis, leading the Sri Lankan side in this game, took to the crease. Mendis attempted to take on Australian bowler Adam Zampa but was sent back to the pavilion after a remarkable display of athleticism by David Warner.
Warner, positioned at fine square leg, astonished everyone with his agility as he sprinted towards the ball and made a breathtaking, diving catch to dismiss Kusal Mendis for just nine runs, marking a significant setback for Sri Lanka. This catch by Warner, clinging onto the ball even while his knee got momentarily stuck in the ground during the tumble, has provided Australia with a crucial breakthrough in the match.
Warner earlier played a pivotal role in breaking the 125-run partnership by taking a catch to dismiss Nissanka, and he continues to shine on the field with two amazing catches. In addition to Warner’s efforts, Adam Zampa’s dismissal of Sadeera Samarawickrama with a single-digit score shifted the momentum in Australia’s favor.
