David Warner is a platinum-rated cricket entertainer. With the bat, and even without it. During the first ODI against Sri Lanka at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Kandy, he gave cricket fans another moment to behold when he grabbed a one-handed catch to dismiss Dhananjaya de Silva while fielding at mid-on.
His effort left many jaws dropped, including some of his teammates.
Ashton Agar, the bowler, was also left in disbelief after watching Warner’s brilliance.
Here’s a video of the catch and the celebrations followed by the men in yellow.

For Australia, Marnus Labuschagne and Ashton Agar picked a couple of wickets each. Chasing the total, the visitors were 282/8 in 42.3 overs when the rain halted play.
