The sport of cricket frequently features the presence of strange occurrences. At the Centurion on Wednesday, an incident of this kind occurred during a South African Twenty20 league match between Sunrisers Eastern Cape and MI Cape Town.
In a video that was shared on Twitter by Super Sport, Pakistan anchor Zainab Abbas is seen providing commentary on the game as she is positioned directly next to the line that denotes the boundary.
During the 13th over, Marco Jansen of Sunrisers Eastern Cape hit a wonderful shot towards mid-wicket off Sam Curran. The fielder who was there at the time, in an attempt to stop the ball, made a tremendous dash but collided with Abbas.
“I made it through, but now I understand how it must have felt! Bring the ice pack to the table “After some time had passed, she tweeted about the event along with a video of it.
In reference to the game, Sunrisers Eastern Cape achieved a remarkable victory by attempting to chase a goal score of 172. Even after hitting 100 runs, the Sunrisers remained behind by five wickets. But thanks in large part to Marco Jansen’s 66 off just 27 deliveries, they were able to cross the finish line.
