Steketee gets run out in the most dramatic circumstance as Brisbane Heat lost by 1 run in BBL

The ongoing 10th edition of the Big Bash League BBL made the headlines for all the controversial reasons. Former Australian players launched a scathing attack on the standard of umpiring. There have been strange calls from the umpires.

Umpiring decisions went in favor of some teams while it also went against some teams as well. Former Australian legend Shane Warne also criticized the umpiring standards of BBL. He also urged Cricket Australia to bring DRS technology in the Big Bash League.

The 20th BBL match between Hobart Hurricanes and Brisbane Heat saw yet another controversial incident. Steketee was run out in the most dramatic circumstance in the last ball.

The dismissal once again sparked the debate around the introduction of the Decision Review System in the Australian franchise cricket tournament. The controversial run-out handed Hurricanes a 1-run win at The Gabba, Brisbane.

Controversial run out in BBL

Steketee gets run out in the most dramatic circumstance as Brisbane Heat lost by 1 run in BBL

Hobart Hurricanes played first and scored 150 in their allotted quota of 20 overs. Dawid Malan was the pick of the batsmen as he scored 39 where Tim David scored a quickfire knock as he chipped in with 36 off just 17 balls. In reply, Brisbane Heat ran through a terrible start to the game.

Meredith and Boland dismissed Heazlett and Wildermuth for ducks. Tom Cooper also departed after making a run. After being reduced to 8/3, Brisbane Heat was in all sorts of trouble before Bryant and Gregory struck a 52-run partnership. Bryant and Gregory departed after scoring 32 and 29 respectively.

James Bazley took responsibility and delivered the much-needed amends. He scored a vital 49 off 31 balls including 4 fours and 2 sixes. While he remained not out, he couldn’t help the team get past the finishing line.

He trusted his partner Steketee would finish off the job in the last ball. However, that didn’t happen. Brisbane Heat required 2 runs off the last ball to win the match. Boland did his best to keep the Steketee in check and accomplished the job quite successfully.

Steketee managed to hit the ball towards the cover but then a controversial run-out happened. Colin Ingram collected the ball and aimed a direct throw towards the stumps.

He hit the stumps and Steketee was run out in a controversial manner. The batsman made it to the crease but his bat popped up when he dived into the crease. Ingram’s direct hit from cover sent him packing.

Mujeeb Ur Rahman – Man of the Match

The Afghanistan international Mujeeb was named the man of the match for his bowling masterclass. He took a ridiculous 5 wickets to his name while also maintaining a perfect economy rate.

The 19-year-old mystery spinner gave away only 15 runs in 4 overs. Xavier Bartlett took 2 wickets whereas Wildermuth and Steketee took a wicket for Brisbane Heat. All their efforts went in vain as they lost the game by 1 run.
