Cape Town - With the Proteas having set Australia a world record 539 runs to win the first Test at the WACA in Perth, they knew that early wickets would help their cause no end.

Australian batting kingpin, David Warner, had other ideas however and soon was racing along, hitting six boundaries in his 35 runs.

Together with opening partner, Shaun Marsh, the pair had pushed the Australian second innings total to 52 in just the 12th over.

Without Dale Steyn in their attack and their opening bowlers tiring, the Proteas needed a wicket... and fast!

In stepped the diminutive middle-order batsman, Temba Bavuma. 

Already known as a whippet in the field and for his close catching prowess at short-leg, Bavuma pulled off one of the best run-outs you will ever see. The fact that he dismissed the dangerous David Warner made it even more special.

Warner set off for a single after playing a ball in the region of short cover. 

Like a flash, Bavuma had picked the ball up, flung himself horizontally and released in a mere 0.264 seconds to send Warner on his way! 

Visions of that other South African fielding dynamo, Jonty Rhodes quickly sprung to mind!

It certainly was an incredible piece of fielding and one that will be replayed over and over again. And rightly so!
