Video: Umpire slips after setting the bails in BBL match

The Big Bash League had many special moments right from the blow of the whistle. Once we saw Leo Carter hitting 6 sixes in a single over, then we saw Rashid Khan and Haris Rauf taking a hat-trick and to sum it up, we also witnessed some brilliant catches on the field.

Umpire slipped on the pitch after setting the bails at the Adelaide Oval.

During the 34th game of the ongoing ninth season of the Big Bash League between Adelaide Strikers and Melbourne Renegades in Adelaide, we witnessed an amusing incident. The on-field umpire Shawn Craig had slipped right after setting the bails to register a bit of an amusing incident.

The drama took place during Renegades all-rounder Samit Patel’s over when umpire Shawn Craig ran in from his position at square leg region only to put the bails back on the stumps.

Having done the same quite well, Craig’s attempt to back-peddle his way back to his position saw him slipping and finally falling down on the ground.

After Strikers skipper Travis Head won the toss and elected to bat first, the hosts managed to post 173/6 in 20 overs with the help of 80-run partnership for the fifth wicket between Jonathan Wells (58) and Matthew Short (41).

Chasing 174, Renegades were skittled out for 110 in 17.4 overs. Except for Beau Webster (49), no other Melbourne batsmen showed positive signs of playing against Adelaide’s bowling attack.

With impressive bowling figures of 3-0-14-3, veteran Strikers pacer Peter Siddle was the best bowler for Adelaide. Besides him, crafty spinner Rashid Khan and Head picked two wickets apiece.
