Australia's uncapped speedster and teenager Aaron Hardie stunned the touring Indian skipper Virat Kohli when he dismissed the 30-year-old by taking a one hander catch from his own ball.

The 19-year-old took the catch and then tossed the ball in the air as Virat Kohli walked off watching the replay of his own dismissal. Kohli was on 64 of 88 balls when Hardie took the amazing catch.


When reporters asked about it, Hardie said "It was a pretty amazing feeling. It all happened very quickly. Because he was smacking me around the park a little bit and then next minute he hit one back to me."

Aaron Hardie also took Rohit Sharma's wicket and registered the number of 4-50 while cleaning up the lower order of the Indian side.

India and Australia will play a four-match Test series starting from December 6 in Adelaide, Australia. India is currently playing a practice match against Cricket Australia XI, where Virat Kohli, Prithvi Shaw and three other batsman scored a fluent half-century.

Earlier this month, India and Australia played a T20I series that was levelled at 1-1. Australia won the first match of the series by 4 runs (DLS method), second match was abondoned due to rain and India won the third match by six wickets, where Virat Kohli played a match winning strike and made 61 runs of 41 balls.
