In a display of remarkable athleticism, Australian all-rounder Cameron Green once again enthralled fans with a spectacular catch during the second Test against West Indies at The Gabba in Brisbane. The highlight of Day 3 was undoubtedly Green's extraordinary effort in the gully, which led to the dismissal of West Indies' keeper-batter Joshua Da Silva.

Green defies gravity to claim crucial wicket at The Gabba

The memorable moment unfolded in the 53rd over of West Indies' innings. Mitchell Starc delivered a full and wide delivery, tempting Da Silva to play a risky shot. Da Silva, attempting to drive the ball, ended up edging it towards the gully. What followed was a moment of sheer brilliance in the field.

Green, known for his height and agility, was perfectly positioned at the gully. As the ball flew towards him, it appeared to be heading over most fielders, but Green was not to be beaten. He leaped into the air with remarkable agility, extending his long arms to intercept the ball.

Although the ball initially slipped out of his grasp, Green's quick reflexes came into play. The ball, having ricocheted off his hands, looped up conveniently, allowing him to make a stunning recovery and complete the catch on the rebound.

Meanwhile, at the Tea break on Day 3, West Indies are positioned at 183 for 6 wickets, holding a lead of 205 runs. The batting duo of Justin Greaves and Kevin Sinclair are at the crease, attempting to extend their team's lead in a bid to set a challenging target for Australia.

The match situation suggests an intriguing final phase, with a target of around 280 runs likely to pose a significant challenge for the Australian team. The West Indies pacers, who have already shown their mettle in the first innings, will be eager to exploit the conditions and defend any total set by their batters.
