Watch: Lazy shot offers a hit wicket to Guptill
New Zealand right handed batsman Martin Guptill was dismissed in a funny manner against South Africa as he hit the stumps with his foot during the follow up of a pull shot.
New Zealand beat South Africa by 4 wickets in their recent game of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. But they had to fight till the end to win the match.
New Zealand opening batsman Martin Guptill was in good touch and unfortunately he lost his wicket in a bizarre manner in the form of hit wicket. Guptill lost his balance while playing a pull shot and in process, took out the stumps to get dismissed hit-wicket. Therefore, the Kiwi opener became the 10th batsman in the history of World Cup to get dismissed by hit-wicket.
Guptill’s hit-wicket became ICC World Cup 2019’s first such dismissal. Former Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq was the last batsman, before Guptill, to get out by hit-wicket. Misbah had suffered the unfortunate dismissal in the 2015 World Cup match between Pakistan and Ireland.
