Hashim Amla's dismissal to Mohammed Shami in the second innings of the first Test of South Africa against India was remarkable, with the batsman ducking a delivery which ended up clean-bowling him.


Amla is currently ranked second on the ICC's list of Test batsmen, and is one of the game's best players.

But this was a rare misjudgement—despite the pitch offering some uneven bounce, it was still a remarkable way to go.
