In the on-going scintillating encounter between South Africa and Sri Lanka in Match 4 of the ICC World Cup 2023, Van der Dussen, the second centurion for South Africa in this high-stakes match after Quinton de Kock, fell victim to a brilliantly executed delivery by Pathirana.

The turning point for Sri Lanka occurred in the 37th over when Dunith Wellalage bowled a tantalizing delivery to van der Dussen. As the crowd held its breath, van der Dussen, danced down the pitch to take on the bowler. With a swift swing of the bat, he lofted the ball towards the long-on boundary, aiming for a boundary or even a maximum.

However, it was not to be for van der Dussen on this occasion. The ball sailed high in the air, giving spectators and players alike a heart-stopping moment. Sadeera, stationed deep on the boundary, exhibited nerves of steel as he judged the catch to perfection. With an outstretched hand, he plucked the ball from the sky, sending van der Dussen back to the pavilion.

The dismissal was a crucial breakthrough for Sri Lanka, as van der Dussen had been in phenomenal form, contributing a century to South Africa's formidable total. This wicket breathed new life into the Sri Lankan side and set the stage for a thrilling finish to the match.

At the time of writing, South Africa is at 277-2.
