Watch: Jaw-dropping fielding effort from Faf du Plessis and David Miller sends Mitch Marsh back

If there is one match that can be remembered for the standard of its fielding efforts then this T20I between South Africa and Australia stand tall as an example for that. In the shortest format of the game, fielding is one area which can make a massive difference to the scoreboard.

Even a target of 120 can be made to look like a 140 through extraordinary fielding efforts. The likes of toss, batting and bowling cannot be controlled as a poor decision by the umpire might see the end of the batsman or can deny the bowler a wicket but If anything, the ground fielding and catching is one thing that can be controlled in a cricket match.

Astonishing effort from Faf and Miller

The former South African captain and the southpaw David Miller pulled off a stunning effort in the boundary line to dismiss the Australian all-rounder Mitchell March which paved the way for the South Africans to level the series.

What has been the biggest highlight of India's tour of Australia 2020-21?

When the Australians needed a mere 21 runs from 14 balls, Mitchell Marsh tried to bring the equation down by hitting a six only to be caught by Faf du Plessis at the boundary line who threw the ball inside the field of play which was pounced by David Miller to complete one of the most fascinating catches ever.

The Proteas level the series

The Australians pressed the panic button at the last minute to gift South Africans a victory which helped them to level the 3 match T20I series with one game to go. The Proteas batted first and posted 158 runs on the board with the skipper Quinton de Kock scoring 70 runs.

The Australians started the chase with a bang but a middle order collapse in the end thanks to some eye catching fielding efforts from the Proteas saw them losing the game by 12 runs.
