Kagiso Rabada’s back-of-length delivery to Mitchell Marsh led to a remarkable catch by Rassie van der Dussen at covers, stunning everyone and reigniting South Africa’s momentum.
In the ongoing Australia vs. South Africa World Cup Semi-Final, a pivotal moment occurred during the 8th over as Kagiso Rabada bowled to Mitchell Marsh, resulting in his dismissal for zero runs off six balls. A remarkable catch by Rassie van der Dussen off Rabada’s delivery shifted the game’s momentum significantly.
Rabada’s delivery, pitched back of a length around the off, prompted Marsh’s forceful stroke towards covers. Van der Dussen’s extraordinary effort saw him leap to his right, securing the catch mid-air with both hands while on a downward trajectory. Marsh appeared stunned by the catch as Rabada regained control.
Earlier, Australia’s strong start, led by Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood, restricted South Africa to 22 runs in 11 overs, losing key wickets including Quinton de Kock. Despite the early struggle, David Miller’s resilience, along with Heinrich Klaasen’s support, revived the Proteas’ innings to a 95-run partnership.
However, Travis Head’s crucial breakthroughs tilted the game in Australia’s favor again. Miller’s valiant century, amidst partnerships and tail-end batting, lifted South Africa to a total of 212. The match witnessed rain interruptions, but Miller’s remarkable solo effort almost salvaged South Africa’s innings after a rough start.
