Melbourne Stars were chasing 163 for victory over rivals Melbourne Renegades on Saturday night to keep their slim finals hopes alive when Beau Webster launched the ball from Tom Rogers high into the nightsky. He achieve no distance with his swipe but plenty of elevation. As the ball soared to hit the roof, Clarke was handed an automatic six for the ball cannoning into the closed stadium’s 38-metre high roof. Had the ball not struck the roof, it would have been a potential catching opportunity for the fielder in the circle, leaving fans lambasting the ridiculous rule.
