Joe Denly catch vs Australia: Watch English fielder's grabs one-handed stunner to dismiss Tim Paine at Lord's

Joe Denly catch vs Australia: The English fielder was seen diving to his left to grab a potentially game-changing catch at Lord’s.

During the fifth day of the second Test of the ongoing 2019 Ashes series between England and Australia at Lord’s, England batsman Joe Denly dived to his left to grab a mid-air one-handed catch to dismiss Australia captain Tim Paine.

It all happened on the last delivery of the 41st over when Paine lost his patience to pull an Archer delivery. In what was a mis-timed shot, it went in the air on the left of the square leg fielder in Denly. Given the situation of the match, Denly’s attempt has it in it to change the course of the match for the hosts.

Paine, who came in to bat at No. 7 in the 37th over, had to occupy for the crease for a few more overs in a bid to make sure that the match ends in a draw. It is worth mentioning that the right-hand batsman had got out while pulling the ball in the last match at Edgbaston as well.

The 34-year old cricketer ended up scoring 4 (17). With him getting out in quick succession alongside Marnus Labuschagne (59) and Matthew Wade (1) has put the visitors in a definite spot of bother.

Chasing a 267-run target, Australia can’t win the match from this point. All that they will be hoping at this moment is the co vice-captain-duo of Travis Head and Pat Cummins saving the match for them.
