David Warner’s incredible catch dismisses Joe Root on 4th day

David Warner took five gets before Day 4 in the continuous third Ashes Test at Headingley in Leeds yet none were as astounding or as significant than the one he took on the fourth day to expel England chief Joe Root. Remaining in first slip, David Warner was airborne when he got a handle on the catch as Root descended the wicket to Nathan Lyon and attempted to whip the off-spinner through the leg side. Lyon's conveyance redirected off Root's back leg, circled over Australia chief and wicketkeeper Tim Paine, with Warner plunging full length and finishing the catch with two hands.

Joe Root figured out how to add only two hurries to his medium-term score before he was expelled for 77 to support Australia's odds of finishing an Ashes-securing win on the fourth day.

The part of the arrangement ball innings left England 159/4 in the 78th over and as yet requiring a further 200 races to arrive at an impressive triumph focus of 359.

Just three sides have made more than 300 to win in the fourth innings of a Test at Headingley - Australia (404-3 out of 1948), England (315-4 against Australia, 2001) and the West Indies with 322-5 two years prior.

Britain was presently left looking to all-rounder Ben Stokes and new batsman Jonny Bairstow, similar to Root playing on his Yorkshire home ground, as they attempted to level this five-coordinate arrangement at 1-1.

That England got any opportunity whatsoever of success, even a remote one, was striking given they had been expelled for only 67 - their most minimal Ashes aggregate since 1948 - in the primary innings.

They still couldn't seem to add to their medium-term score when Stokes missed a draw off a Josh Hazlewood bouncer that crushed into his head protector, between the grille and top, with the stem gatekeeper ensuring his neck taking off at the back.

On the off chance that Australia wins this match, they will hold the Ashes at 2-0 up with two to play having whipped England by 251 keeps running in the arrangement opener at Edgbaston.
