The on-going ninth edition of the Big Bash League is producing some magnificent moments of joy. One such moment came in the 15th match of this season, which was being played between Adelaide Strikers and Melbourne Renegades on Docklands Stadium at Melbourne.
In the 17th over of second innings of the game, Rashid Khan was bowling to Beau Webster of Melbourne Renegades. On the third ball of the over, he bowled a wrong ‘un to him and that was a plumb LBW decision and once the umpire Greg Davidson started to raise finger and batsman started to walk and Adelaide Strikers started to celebrate but in the end the umpire stopped and placed his finger near his nose itching it and given it not out.
Cameron White, who was on mic at that time was asked about what he thought of that happened on the field. He replied, “That’s the right decision if he changed it. That’s what we want. Thanks, the right outcome.”
Rashid Khan however produced a match winning spell of four overs giving away just 15 runs and claiming 2 wickets for his team. He also scored 25 runs of just 16 balls hitting 2 sixes and as many boundaries. He was chosen as Man of the match for his all-round performance.
