Ashton Agar pulled off an acrobatic effort in the first one-day international between Australia and England to prevent a certain six to Dawid Malan on the bowling of new ODI captain Pat Cummins.
It happened in the 45th over of England’s innings. Malan scored an aggressive 134 and tried to clear the deep mid-wicket boundary.
He timed the ball properly, and it looked like the delivery will go over the ropes, but Agar pulled off a sensational effort to save a certain six.
He jumped off the ground near the boundary and pulled the ball back. The Jos Buttler-led team managed 287/9 in 50 overs, with Adam Zampa and Pat Cummins taking three wickets each, respective;y.
