Watch: Weatherald gets run out twice in a single delivery
Adelaide Strikers batsman Jake Weatherald got run out twice in the same delivery during a league game against Sydney Thunders.
This Australian summer’s Big Bash League is slowly moving towards the conclusion, with few more games left in the season. Once again, the season is fantabulous, and getting bigger with the arrival of Australian stars in the league, after the Test series against India.
In the 51st match of the league, Adelaide Strikers took on Sydney Thunders. Adelaide Strikers batted first and scored 159 runs for the loss of six wickets. In reply, Sydney Thunders fell 6 runs short of the target and ensured a needed win for the Adelaide Strikers.
During the first innings of the game, Adelaide Strikers batsman Jake Weatherald got run out twice in the same delivery. It was in the 10th over, Philips Salt drove the ball straight from Chris Green and that went on to hit the stumps after clipping off the bowler’s hand.
Jake Weatherald was slow to respond on the non-striker’s end and he was late to the crease. Meanwhile, Salt called for a quick single, and there too Weatherald was slow and the wicket-keeper Sam Billings with an outstanding effort ran out the batsman in the striker’s end.
The third umpire was referred and the replays suggested that the batsman was out on both ends. The unique dismissal ended Weatherald’s stay on 31. In the second innings, he took an outstanding one-handed catch too.
What just happened?! Jake Weatherald somehow got run out at both ends, on the same ball! ?
