Watch – David Miller Takes A Brilliant Catch To Get Shikhar Dhawan Out
Veteran South Africa cricketer David Miller grabbed one of the best catches of the century to dismiss Shikhar Dhawan in the second T20I against India in Mohali.
Chasing a moderate total, Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma got India off to a flying start. Rohit struck two sixes to add 33 runs for the first wicket before getting out. But skipper Virat Kohli and Dhawan took control of the game since then to keep the home side on track.
They added 61 runs for the second wicket as India continue to match the asking rate. They both rotated the strike well while the boundaries kept coming consistently. As India was cruising to the total convincingly, David Miller grabbed a brilliant catch to put a halt to the free flow of runs.
Shikhar Dhawan came down the pitch in a bid to go big straight down the ground off Tabraiz Shamsi. He got too close to the pitch of the delivery and drags the slog off the cue end of the bat. It was destined for a boundary until David Miller pounced onto it from nowhere. He jumped to his right and pluck the ball out of thin air while tumbling across to his right.

They used the slower deliveries to perfection after Quinton de Kock and Temba Bavuma gave the visitors a perfect start taking on the new ball. The new skipper scored an outstanding century before Indian bowlers pulled things back in their favour.
