Cummins' Reaction After Miller's Dismissal Will Leave You In Splits

Australia registered a thrilling seven-run victory against South Africa in the second One-day International (ODI) at the Adelaide Oval on Friday. The nail-biting contest witnessed terrific on-field action from both the teams. Australia’s Pat Cummins reaction to one of the dismissals during the Proteas’ run-chase grabbed eye balls. The bizarre incident took place in the 44th over of the South African innings when Australia went for an LBW review against David Miller. The left-hander was trapped in front of the stumps by Marcus Stoinis but was originally ruled not out. Skipper Aaron Finch went for the review and the third umpire over-turned the decision of the on-field umpire. During the long pending decision the Australian camp was curiously looking at the big screen. Soon after the decision was displayed on the screen, the whole team went up for celebration except Pat Cummins, who surprisingly continued to gaze at the screen.

Here’s how fans reacted on Twitter after Cummins’ bizzare look.

The Australian team ended their seven-match losing streak in the 50-over format after registering a win in the second ODI against South Africa. 

A combined batting effort from the middle order along with a three-wicket haul from Stoinis helped Australia level the series 1-1 against the Proteas. Aaron Finch (44), Chris Lynn (47) and wicket-keeper Alex Carey (47) helped Australia post 231 runs on the board before bundling out in the 49th over. 

Stoinis took three wickets for 35 as he tore apart the South African middle order in the run chase. Pacers Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood grabbed two wickets each to help Australia clinch the much needed win. David Miller (51) and skipper Faf du Plessis (47) were the top scorers for South Africa but failed to take the team across the line. 

The final match of the ODI series will in Hobart on Sunday.
