Andre Russell was at the receiving end of some rotten luck as he fell victim to one of the most bizarre run-outs ever seen on a cricket field. In the 15th over, Russell dabbed a ball from Thisara Perera onto the offside and took off for a quick single. Mahedi Hasna, fielding at short third man, had a successful shy at the striker’s end but the ball ricocheted off the stumps and, quite astonishingly, knocked the bails off the stumps at Russell’s end on the rebound, catching the power-striker short of his ground.
