During a match in the International Twenty20 Cricket tournament, the wicket-keeper for England, Sam Billings, executed a spectacular run out that was reminiscent of MS Dhoni.
Joe Denly was able to defend a delivery that was hit by Benny Howell without too much trouble; but, immediately after playing the shot, he moved one foot outside of his crease in preparation for a single.
Quick as a flash, Billings was able to get his hands on the ball, and with a delicate backhand flick, he was able to create a stunning run out in the match. However, the television replays demonstrated how commendable the effort was, despite the fact that the competition was quite tight.
The commentators were a little bit unclear about whether the dismissal will be judged to be a run out or a stumping when the ball hit the stumps.
It was finally determined to be a run out because Denly displayed his desire to take a run, which is why he moved forward in the play. This led the on-air analysts to conclude that it was a run out.
The attempt was likened to that of the former captain of the Indian cricket team, MS Dhoni, who was famous for his backhand flicks and was responsible for some of the most impressive run outs in the history of the sport.
In the end, the run out proved to be a pivotal point in the game for Billings’ Desert Vipers, who went on to win the match by 22 runs over Sharjah Warriors.
In the Twenty20 match, Desert Vipers batted first and posted a respectable total of 148, with Billings contributing to the effort by scoring 27 runs off 23 balls despite the challenging pitch.
In their reply, the Sharjah Warriors got off to a strong start, and after eight overs, they were securely situated on 50 despite losing two wickets.
However, they continue to lose wickets from that critical point on, and combined with the fact that the asking rate never decreased, they ended their innings with 126 for 8 runs scored.
