AUS vs WI: [WATCH] Cameron Green’s Juggling Catch To Dismiss Joshua Da Silva

Australian all-rounder Cameron Green pulled off a juggling catch to dismiss West Indies batter Joshua Da Silva during the second Test on Saturday, January 27 at The Gabba in Brisbane. The hosts are slightly ahead in the contest to win the test and whitewash the two-match Test series.

The West Indies managed 193 runs in their second innings, setting Australia a target of 216 runs. They had lost five wickets when Joshua Da Silva came out to bat. They needed a partnership to get through to a good total. However, Da Silva couldn’t make much of an impact in the innings.

In the fifty-third over of the West Indies innings, Mitchell Starc bowled a full and wide delivery. Da Silva went for a loose drive away from the body. The ball took the edge and flew towards Cameron Green at gully. The six-foot-tall all-rounder jumped to get his hands on the ball, however, it popped out the first time. Green again attempted diving to his right and completed the catch on his second attempt. Silva had to walk back to the hut for seven runs.
