The Netherlands faced a tough chase against Australia in Match 24 of the World Cup 2023, with the Australian team setting a colossal target of 400 runs.

AUS vs NED: Inglis hangs onto a stunner to dismiss Nidamanuru

But the moment that caught everyone's attention during the chase on Wednesday was a sensational piece of wicketkeeping by Australia's Josh Inglis.

By the 18th over, the Dutch side had already lost 5 wickets for just 62 runs and were trying to rebuild when Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh delivered a ball down the leg-side. Dutch batsman, Teja Nidamanuru tried to glance it but inadvertently got a slight touch off his glove.

In what seemed like a moment frozen in time, wicketkeeper Josh Inglis made an athletic dive forward and managed to pull off an outstanding catch, sending Nidamanuru back to the pavilion for a disappointing score of 14.

The catch not only highlighted Inglis's exceptional skills behind the stumps but also further dimmed Nidamanuru's hopes of making an impact in this tournament, having had a string of low scores.

The Netherlands, unfortunately, didn’t seem to recover from this blow, and at the time of reporting, are placed at 86/8 after 19 overs. Captain Scott Edwards and Aryan Dutt are battling it out in the middle, with the mammoth target of 400 seeming increasingly out of reach.

Earlier in the day, the Australian batting lineup showcased their brilliance with Glenn Maxwell achieving the fastest century in World Cup history, off just 40 balls. 

David Warner too contributed with a splendid century, which allowed the Australians to post a formidable score of 399/8 in their stipulated 50 overs. From the Dutch side, Logan van Beek emerged as the standout bowler, claiming 4 crucial Australian wickets.
