Black Cap Adam Milne has proven he’s more than simply a fast bowler, hauling in one of the better outfield catches you will ever see against Australia in Wellington.
After playing a crucial hand with the bat in resurrecting a stumbling innings, Milne soared to pluck what looked certain to be a six for Matthew Wade out of the sky with a perfectly timed leap and one-handed take.
Shades of Air Vettori at the very same ground against the West Indies in last year’s World Cup semi-final.
Adam Milne pulls off a stunning one-handed catch at the edge of the midwicket boundary. Matthew Wade can’t believe this. He drops to his knees. Pushed through short on middle, Wade skips back and nails a pull.
It looks destined to go for a six. But Milne takes flight, times his jump superbly, and comes out with his ball in his left hand. It took some time for the crowd and Milne himself to realise that he had pouched it.
