Watch: Mccullum’s ravishing effort to save a boundary in BBL
Former New Zealand player and skipper Brendon Mccullum did a fantastic job in the boundary line in the ongoing Big Bash League in Australia.
This season’s Big Bash League tournament is moving towards the knock stage and getting anticipated day by day. In the 36th game of the league, Brisbane Heat took on Sydney Sixers at Sydney Cricket Ground.
Brisbane Heat won the toss and elected to bowl first. After being put into bat first, Sydney Sixers had a good batting display and scored 177 for the loss of seven wickets in the allocated 20 overs. James Vince top scored with 75 runs.
In reply, Brisbane Heat had a poor day with the bat as they were bowled out for 98 runs in their chase and that resulted in a 79 runs victory for Sydney Sixers.
Even though Brendon Mccullum and his team had a bad day at the office, the former New Zealand skipper had a good day as a fielder. The highlighted incident happened during the 17th over of Sydney Sixers innings.
Mujeeb Ur Rahman bowled a full-length delivery to the top scorer of the match James Vince and the right-handed batsman lofted it straightly towards the boundary line. Brendon Mccullum ran all the way towards the ball and managed to get a hand to it to stop it going over the line.
Eventually, Brendon fell on the ground and the ball was again on its way to cross the boundary line. The Kiwi player pushed the ball away with a ravishing jump from the position where he was after falling on the ground. Finally, he managed to save a boundary even though he missed a super catch.
