But while the first two dismissals – of Kieran Powell and Jason Holder – were attributed to Maharajs skills, the third one, of Joshua da Silva, was completely down to the excellence of the fielder. Bowling round the wicket to the right-hander, Maharaj drifted down the pads, but as the batsman clipped it, Wiaan Mulder took a stunning reflex catch to help the left-arm spinner complete his hat-trick. Maharaj became only the second South African bowler in history to take a Test hat-trick, and instantly the team broke into wild celebration, with the man himself unleashing a dive.
