Australian opener Usman Khawaja took a stunning diving catch on the second day of the third Test against India on Thursday, March 2 at the Holkar Stadium in Indore in the 2023 Border Gavaskar Trophy. His fielding effort sent Shreyas Iyer back to the hut in the second innings. It left the fans as well as the experts amazed.

The incident took place during the thirty-eighth over of the Indian innings. Australian skipper Steven Smith brought in Mitchell Starc to break the dangerous-looking partnership between Cheteshwar Pujara and Shreyas Iyer. Starc bowled a full delivery which angled into the right-hander. Iyer flicked the delivery in the air, and Usman Khawaja dived to his left and took a stunner. Iyer was dismissed for an almost run-a-ball 26 runs knock.

Team India succumbed to another disappointing score in the third Test against Australia at the Holkar Stadium in Indore. They were bowled out for 163 runs in the second innings of the Test. Cheteshwar Pujara was the leading scorer in the innings for the hosts. He showed great determination to score 59 runs off 142 deliveries for India. The veteran batter’s small partnerships with Shreyas Iyer, R Ashwin, and Axar Patel took India past the 150 mark.

Australian spinner Nathan Lyon was the star of the innings with eight wickets for sixty-four runs. India managed to take a lead of 75 runs, before getting bowled out. Earlier in the match, batting first India scored 109 runs. Matthew Kuhnemann took a five-wicket haul in the innings, while Nathan Lyon took three.
