Bangladesh batsman Mohammad Saifuddin was lucky enough against England while he was batting as the bails did not fall despite hitting the stumps in delivery from Ben Stokes. A similar incident happened today during the match between Australia and India. This time the lucky batsman was David Warner. [বাংলায় পড়ুন: সাইফউদ্দিনের মতই ‘ভাগ্যবান’ ওয়ার্নার]

Twitter reacts as ball hitting the stumps and bails not falling

This is the fifth time such a thing happened in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup. It happened first time during England vs South Africa match. Then again happened at Cardiff when New Zealand faced Sri Lanka. The third time such a disappointing thing happened for a bowler during Australia vs Windies match when Chris Gayle was lucky enough to be not out despite ball hitting the stumps.
