Everything was going fine on day two of the ongoing Test between Australia and South Africa at Perth but one dismissal brought the on air commentators’ excitement to another level. The second day of the match began with Australia‘s score at 105 with both the openers David Warner and Shaun Marsh at the crease. After sometime, Marsh made another fifty of his career and by that time, Warner had also moved into his 90s and was inching towards another hundred. He had an excellent record of not getting out ever while batting in the 90s and the similar topic was discussed at that time in the commentary box.

Both Mark Nicholas and Shane Warne were on air and seemed quite excited over Warner’s performance. Nicholas was in full mood of praising Warner and went onto claim that the Australian left-hander will surely get his another hundred with the backing of the fact that he has never been out in 90s in Tests. On the very next ball, unfortunately, Warner nicked a good-length delivery from South African pacer Dale Steyn, which carried to first slip and was grabbed by Hashim Amla. The wicket of Warner caught viewers’ eyes as well as that of commentators, who were in for disbelief in the commentary box.

Warne, who was shocked, immediately stood up and slammed his thighs. Warne further went on to accuse Nicholas of putting the commentator’s curse over Warner.

The Australian left-hander got out three short of his hundred and from there on, wickets kept falling and in the end Australia were bowled out for 244, getting just a two-run lead against South Africa.
