Watch: Australia bowler Meredith concedes 17 runs off 1 legal delivery in Big Bash League

Australian fast bowler Riley Meredith suffered a horrible day in the Big Bash League as the Hobart Hurricanes bowler conceded 17 runs off one legal delivery in their home match against the Melbourne Renegades on Thursday.

Meredith, a 22-year-old Tasmania bowler, gave Hobart Hurricanes the worst possible start to their defense of a 184-run target as he conceded 23 runs in the first over of the innings.

It all began when Meredith bowled a huge no-ball in the fourth delivery of the first over.

Meredith followed up the first no-ball with a wide that went way past wicketkeeper Matthew Wade to the boundary, earning Renegades 5 wides. The next ball flew to the boundary off Aaron Finch’s inside-edge. After a brief discussion, the on-field umpire gave it a no-ball for height, albeit it being a marginal decision.

Meredith overstepped once again, completing three no-balls in the first over. Finch didn’t miss out this time as he hit it cleanly to the wide mid-off boundary after making room for himself.

When Meredith finally bowled a legal ball, the Hobart crowd applauded the young fast bowler.

Despite Meredith’s costly first over, Hobart Hurricanes were able to restrict the Melbourne Renegades to 167/8 and clinch a 16-run win. Meredith picked up the wicket of Daniel Christian and finished with figures of 1/43 in his three-over quota.

Earlier in the day, Hobart Hurricanes captain Wade had slammed a 30-ball 58, including four sixes and six boundaries, to take the hosts to 183. Ben McDermott struck a 30-ball 39 before Simon Milenko provided the late blitz (14-ball 27).

Hobart Hurricanes are comfortably placed at the top of the eight-team table with 20 points from 13 matches. The Renegades are third with 16 points from 14 matches.
