In the most recent round of the Big Bash League, which is currently being played, Sydney Sixers were victorious over Perth Scorchers by a score of six runs on Sunday.
In their attempt to reach 152, the Scorchers were only able to muster 145 runs before being eliminated, despite Stephen Eskinazi’s unbroken knock of 66 runs. For the Sixers, Sean Abbott was the most successful bowler, claiming three wickets, while Hayden Kerr and Daniel Christian each claimed two scalps.
Josh Philippe, who keeps wicket for the Sixers, produced the team’s highest run total and guided them to a score of 151/5 in 20 overs. On the other hand, an intriguing occurrence that had place during the game has garnered a lot of attention.
During the 19th over of Scorchers’ chase, Christian got set to throw a ball to Andrew Tye but came back after he spotted that Eskinazi, who was positioned at the non-end, striker’s was out of the crease before the ball was delivered.
Christian did not use up all of the Eskinazi, but he did say that it was a warning to his partner.
It should be noted, however, that this was not the first time a bowler at the non-end striker’s has warned or dismissed a player. Earlier, the captain of the Melbourne Stars, Adam Zampa, made an attempt to run out Tom Rogers, who was batting for the Melbourne Renegades at the non-end striker’s as he stepped out of the crease.
The decision was reviewed and the third umpire did not consider it a run out as Zampa’s arm had “gone past the vertical”, which according to ICC rule is not regarded legal for such a dismissal.
Sydney Sixers will now be going up against Adelaide Strikers in their next match on Tuesday while Perth Scorchers will be facing Hobart Hurricanes on Wednesday.
