New Zealand and Australia have started their first match of three test series at Perth today, and Australia has got a big blow in the first session of the first day as they’ve lost their opener, Joe Burns, in the 13th over itself. Soon he was followed by his fellow opener David Warner in the 26th over of the innings.
Neil Wagner was given the ball to bowl 26th over and the 4th ball of this over has seen the wicket of the inform batsman David Warner, who has hit the triple century recently against Pakistan and almost went close to break the record of Highest Score in Test Cricket registered by Brian Lara.
It all happened due to the mistimed off-defensive shot from David Warner, soon the ball started lobbing and went towards the offside of David Warner and to the right of bowler Neil Wagner, soon Wagner who has all his eyes on the ball has kneeled down and has taken a one-handed stunner to dismiss the dangerous David Warner.
David Warner has ended up scoring 43 runs off 74 balls with a strike rate of 58.11 which includes 4 fours. New Zealand Captain Kane Williamson has done an excellent job by bringing in Wagner for the second spell before lunch and Wagner who came in as a replacement for the Trent Boult has done justice to everyone’s hopes.
Watch Neil Wagner takes a blinder to dismiss David Warner in the first Test at Perth:

Neil Wagner has pulled off one of the great caught-and-bowled grabs #AUSvNZ

Williamson: Trent Boult isn't available to bowl left arm swing and take a ridiculous catch. Do we have any volunteers to take over that role?

He started celebrating even before he caught the ball 😂
