Relay fielding is now a regular feature in the cricketing lexicon, but Haseeb Hameed and Dom Sibley were the protagonists of a more comical version of it. In pursuit of a sweetly-timed drive from Virat Kohli, the two chasers put in simultaneous dives instead of either doing the honours to produce a moment in a lighter vein. There were million-dollar smiles all around, as the pair messed up real bad before somehow managing to get the job done.
“No, after you…” 😂
After a bit of a mix up, Dom Sibley and Haseeb Hameed get the job done in the end on the boundary!

The kind of confusion you expect between a man with scraggly facial hair who believes in letting it go like Haseeb Hameed & a man with a conservative, close-cropped beard like Dom Sibley #EngvIND pic.twitter.com/KEkcqIr3q3
