ADELAIDE: Australian all-rounder Ashton Agar has made headlines with his astonishing fielding effort as he saved a six with a brilliant piece of fielding at the boundary during the first ODI against England.
Agar stole the show with a remarkable effort in the field to save a certain six in the 45th over of England’s inning when the well-set batter Dawid Malan was batting at 131.
Australian captain Patt Cummins bowled a short delivery which was powerfully pulled by Malan over deep mid-wicket where Agar was patrolling the boundary.
He soared in the air at full stretch and snaffled the catch in one hand but quickly released the ball as he flew towards the hoardings.

His breathtaking effort saved six runs for his team and reduced the damage to just one run.
Later, Malan’s valiant centurion knock went in vain as Australia sealed a comprehensive win against England by six wickets in the first encounter of the three-match ODI series.
