[VIDEO] David Miller's supermanesque one-handed catch leaves Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli stunned in 2nd T20I
India got their campaign off to a flyer against South Africa with a thumping victory in the second T20I of the three-match series in Mohali on Wednesday. It was an emphatic all-round performance by Virat Kohli's men rounded off by the captain himself as his unbeaten 72 off 52 balls wrapped-up an easy win for India with an over to spare. South Africa might have lost the game but star batsman David Miller stole the thunder with a superb catch to dismiss Shikhar Dhawan.
Miller left Dhawan and Virat Kohli stunned with his incredible effort on the boundary line as he pulled off one of the best catches of the season already. Dhawan was going strong, playing good strokes with his usual flamboyance when his stay at the crease was cut short in the 12th over after a stupendous effort from Miller, who flew towards his right to pluck a stunner out of thin air.
It was a fullish delivery from Tabraiz Shamsi and Dhawan stepped out to dispatch it straight down the ground. The ball looked certain to fly past the ropes before Miller came out of nowhere and took a brilliant one-handed catch. While Kohli was left amazed with the South African's effort, Dhawan too had a smile on his face despite having received his marching orders.

Dhawan, who was playing well, missed out on a well-deserved half-century as he departed after scoring 40 off 31 balls. However, Dhawan's dismissal didn't stop captain Kohli on the other end as he continued to toy around with the South African bowlers en route his brilliant knock which saw him become the all-time leading run-getter in T20Is surpassing teammate Rohit Sharma.
Dhawan and Kohli had posted a 61-run stand for the second wicket after Rohit's early dismissal and made light work of the 151-run chase with Kohli once again going on a record-breaking spree. India brought an end to their winless streak at home in T20Is against South Africa with the 7-wicket victory.
