Watch: Cameron Green’s one-handed screamer to stop Ajinkya Rahane’s century
Cameron Green took a one-handed screamer to send back Indian batsman Ajinkya Rahane on 89.
Australia’s all-rounder Cameron Green plucked an outstanding catch to dismiss Ajinkya Rahane. Rahane was marching towards his 13th test century and was caught at point by Cameron Green, who took an unbelievable catch to give Australia the break they needed. In the first session, Australia missed a few chances against Indian batters that gave them an opportunity to avoid the follow-on. Rahane and Shardul Thakur had an outstanding partnership for the 7th wicket to take India out of a big crisis. Australians didn’t have a great first session and dropped a few easy chances against Rahane and Shardul. Green’s catch has brought life back to the Australian camp against India.
Green’s outstanding catch
In the second over after lunch, Rahane was looking for a century after almost 30 months in test cricket. He started nicely to defend a few of the deliveries and was looking for an opportunity to fetch runs. Cummins bowled a short-of-length delivery with some width to Rahane who tried to nudge it down the third man but got an outside edge instead, that went flying towards Cameron Green who was guarding the point region. Green leaped in the air and dived to his right to pluck an unbelievable catch. This catch ended one of the great knocks from Rahane’s test career.
