New Zealand fast bowler Neil Wagner pulled off a stunner off his own bowling to dismiss in-form David Warner in the first Test at the Perth on Thursday. Wagner bowled a low full toss, Warner tried to push it down the ground but it hit the toe-end of the bat. The Kiwi bowler on his follow-through clung on to the ball while falling backwards. The left-arm seamer got his right hand just inches from the ground to stun the Aussie opener.

Warner did not even wait for the third umpire as he started walking back to the dressing room as Wagner completed the catch. The 33-year-old scored 43 runs from 74 deliveries including four boundaries.
