AB de Villiers’ disastrous run-out, which triggered the Proteas batting collapse is Craig Stirton’s Play of the Day.
De Villiers and Faf du Plessis had done extremely well to increase the tempo of South Africa’s innings by rotating the strike with ease.
Disaster struck, however, when Du Plessis called his captain through for a risky single. After Du Plessis cut the ball to Hardik Pandya at point, it was always going to be tough for De Villiers to make his ground.
The on-field umpires referred the decision to the third umpire. Despite a dive by De Villiers to make his ground, wicketkeeper MS Dhoni took the ball cleanly and whipped the bails off to send the Proteas captain on his way for 16.
The dismissal of De Villiers sparked a batting collapse that saw the Proteas lose their remaining seven wickets for the addition of only 51 runs.
