Cameron Green is fast making a name for himself with his fine fielding efforts at gully and the allrounder pulled off yet another stunning catch on Sunday during the ongoing fourth Test against India in Brisbane. The allrounder, who made his Test debut earlier in this series, took the catch to send back Rishabh Pant as Australia strengthened their grip on the game.
Given Rishabh Pant’s fine record in Australia, the hosts desperately needed the wicket and fortunately for them, the India wicketkeeper didn’t last long thanks to Cameron Green. Pant got the start once again and was batting on 23 when he was dismissed by Josh Hazlewood.

In the 67th over, Rishabh Pant tried to guide a short and wide delivery from Hazlewood through the off-side. However, he failed to execute his plan and ended up hitting the ball too close to Cameron Green who quickly bent down and took a stunning low catch. Pant’s dismissal saw India getting reduced to 186 for 6.
Here is a clip of the catch from Cameron Green:
