DA Warner the most dangerous batsmen in Australia batting line scored 35 runs off 33 balls and when his wicket down then it was 12.2 from Rabada, a direct hit and Warner is run-out. What a piece of fielding from Bavuma. Back of a length on middle, Warner pushes in front of point.
Bavuma rushes in and picks up cleanly. Now, remember he is a right-hander. He gets himself in an awkward position to ensure he saves a fraction of a second to get the throwaway. Contorts his body and fires the stumps down at the bowler’s end. Looked like Warner was dawdling towards the end knowing there was no way he could have been run-out.
His bat is on the crease and is out. The best piece of fielding I’ve seen in a long, long while. To get someone as fast as Warner run-out. Got to the ball quickly too, he was airborne when he released the ball. So accurate that he hits the base of middle stump. Awesome. 52/1.
