Moises Henriques, on Sunday, took a stunning diving catch to send back Virat Kohli in the ongoing second ODI between India and Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG).
The India skipper was batting on 89 and looking set to score his 44th ODI ton when Moises Henriques took the catch to bring an end to his fine fighting knock. The dismissal has once again put the hosts on top in the ongoing clash which is a do-or-die one for the visitors.
On the penultimate delivery of the 35th over bowled by Josh Hazlewood, Virat Kohli shuffled across the stumps and pulled a length ball hard towards mid-wicket where Moises Henriques was standing. The ball was quite far from him but the Australia allrounder made a full length dive towards his left side to take the catch.
