Melbourne Renegades captain Nic Maddinson was left bemused midway through the ninth over, as he found that one of the zing bails had fallen on its own after he middled a pull shot behind square leg off the bowling of Brisbane Heat quick Mark Steketee, Maddinson turned around to see the stumps lit up and one bail lying on the turf.
A stunned Maddinson began trudging off the park before replays showed the batter’s feet and bat — as well as the ball itself — had not made any contact with the stumps when he played the shot. Instead, the bail had mysteriously fallen without any intervention.
What on earth???
Looks like the wind’s knocked the bail off! Maddinson stays safe 😅@KFCAustralia #BucketMoment #BBL12 pic.twitter.com/sboxGvIewA
