Toyota Memorable Moment - Wade's Diving Catch

UPDATED 04 January, 2013 3:14PM AEST | 1

A remarkable running catch from Aussie keeper Matthew Wade helped put Australia in a commanding position heading into day two of the Vodafone Boxing Day Test.

Australia came out firing in the traditional Vodafone Boxing Day Test and with a huge crowd willing them on, it was debutant Jackson Bird who claimed the first wicket of the game and his first Test wicket. A ripper of a catch in the slips from Mike Hussey got rid of Mathews and although David Warner made an quick-fire 62 that included a monster six, our moment of the day was Matthew Wade's stunning diving catch near the boundary after sprinting more than 20 metres to dismiss danger man Kumar Sangakkara. What was yours?
