The WACA has seen a lot of great moments over the years.

That Doug Walters six in ’75, the Adam Gilchrist blitzkrieg in the 2006 Ashes series & the Curtly Ambrose spell of 7 for 1 run to mention a few.

On Sunday, we saw something worthy of joining that illustrious list.

Enter Temba Bavuma.

From his position at point, Bavuma accelerated at electric speed towards cover and gathered the ball with his right hand, took aim at the stumps with cat like agility and fired the ball towards the timbers… all in 0.264 seconds.

Any other fielder in the world and David Warner eases through for a standard single. It was simply outrageous - a moment of pure magic.

26-year-old Bavuma, who is the first black batsman to play for the Proteas, may just be one of the best fielders South Africa has ever produced. Right up there with the legendary Jonty Rhodes.

We’re only one game into the three match series & Bavuma has already become a viral sensation. Not only for his extraordinary run-out, but the moment the 5’ 6’ man tried to high-five a 6’ 5’ Kagiso Rabada.

Comedy gold.

For sure, we will be seeing Bavuma’s brilliance on highlight reels for decades to come.

Was his run-out the GREATEST you have ever seen? Let us know below.
