Watch – Chris Woakes takes ‘one of the best catches ever’ to dismiss Steve Smith
Chris Woakes, the English pacer, took a stunning catch to get rid of Steve Smith in a match between England and Australia. The ball had almost passed him but the tall bowler timed his jump to perfection to complete the catch with one hand. Even his teammates and batter were stunned to see this kind of effort from a player, who just returned after bowling his over.
Earlier, Eoin Morgan won the toss and decided to bowl first. The two have won two games each in the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup and the winner of this game will have one foot in the semi-finals of the game.
