Cricket is the second-most-watched sport in the world after football. The bat-ball game has entertained the fans for decades and is continuing to be a fan-favourite to many.
As the years progressed, the cricket fraternity has seen different formats. Among the formats, T20 format is the most-watched format in the world.
The epic battles between batsmen and bowlers have been interesting. The bowler tries his best to deceive the batsman by bowling at right line and length.
On the other hand, the batsman tries to read the mind of the bowler and tries his maximum best to get the better of him.
In the process, the battles get more and more spicy. However, what we can deduce from the sport is that, cricket is totally unpredictable.
Batsman loses his bat while attempting to play a shot and gets run out
Nobody literally knows what would happen in the next delivery. Whenever a drama happens, the incident goes viral on social media platforms.
Meanwhile, an incident during Pakistan’s National T20 Cup took the cricket fraternity by surprise. The batsman tried to play a shot off a bowler in the first place.
As it turned out, the batsman lost control of the grip as he lost his bat in the follow-through. The bat went flying in the air behind the stumps and fell on the turf.
The confused batsman who was barely out of his crease didn’t know what just happened as he was figuring out that he accidentally released the bat from both hands.
Meanwhile, the opposition fielder sensed that the batsman was out of his crease. He thought it was a great opportunity to run him out as he hit the bull’s eye.
However, the fans felt that it is totally against the spirit of the game. On the other hand, other section of fans say, “Not poor spirit but awareness. The batter was not injured and he should have and it should have been inside the line.”
