Thomas to Smith, out Caught by Cottrell!! Oh what a stunning grab by Cottrell. Salute to the soldier. Gets a great round of applause, while Smith is being booed off the field. Smith can’t believe Cottrell has caught this. This was actually a stylish whip from Smith, targetting the backward square leg fence. The timing was good enough to go all the way.
Cottrell ran to his left from fine leg, but it looked like it will go past him. But he stuck his left hand out and caught the ball, was too close to the rope, takes a step and then releases as he was about to cross the rope. Recovers in time and catches it again. What a catch. But take nothing away from Smith’s knock. Hung in there, absorbed all the pressure and now Australia have a good fighting score.
Here is the clip of that video:
Take a bow Sheldon Cottrell, that was incredible! 🤭
