This is a video about Sam Whiteman, the wicket keeper batsman from Western Australia, who took a brilliant catch to dismiss India A opener Robin Uthappa in their last unofficial match at the Allan Border field in Brisbane. He along with Mitchell Marsh showed great characters in order to save the match for Australia A.
A record 371-run partnership between Mitchell Marsh and Sam Whiteman rescued Australia Afrom the brink of a collapse to 522 for nine at stumps on Day Three of their four-day match against India A at the Allan Border Field in Brisbane on Tuesday. The Western Australia teammates came together on Monday evening with the hosts reeling at 99 for six and resumed play on Tuesday at 126 for six. The partnership ended at 470 for seven, having set the second-highest partnership for the seventh wicket in First-Class cricket history.
With India A declaring at 475 for nine and ending Day Two with the home team down at 126 for six, the visitors were in total command of the match before Marsh and Whiteman changed the course. The pair batted through the first two sessions without losing a wicket as they continued Australia A’s rescue mission and recording their own personal milestones. Wicket keeper-batsman Whiteman raised his bat for his maiden first class century before finally departing for 174 off the spin of Karun Nair. He hammered 26 boundaries and a six in his 278-ball knock.
