Australia and India are currently featuring in the series-deciding third ODI at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground.

In a crucial tie, India skipper Virat Kohli won the toss and opted to bowl first. Bhuvneshwar Kumar ensured that his captain made the right decision as he removed both the Aussie openers – Alex Carey (5) and Aaron Finch (14) – cheaply.

Apart from his brilliant spell with the new ball, Bhuvneshwar also contributed for the team with his remarkable fielding. He grabbed a stunning catch to dismiss the dangerous looking Glenn Maxwell for 26.

During the 35th over of Australian innings, Maxwell top-edged a short delivery from Mohammad Shami. It was a tough catch to judge with the big stands in the background but Bhuvneshwar had his eyes glued on the ball as he ran some 10-15 metres, dived on the move and took it with both hands.

Here is the video of that amazing catch by Bhuvneshwar:

Besides Bhuvi, Yuzvendra Chahal (6/42) ripped through the Australian batting line-up to bundle out the hosts for 230 runs in 48.4 overs. Shami also chipped in with a couple of wickets. Peter Handscomb top-scored for Australia with 58 runs off 63 balls.
