Cricket world stunned by 'freakiest run-out in history'

If you think you’ve seen it all in cricket, think again.

Andre Russell can consider himself extremely unlucky after he fell victim to one of the most bizarre run-outs ever seen on a cricket field.

The West Indies all-rounder was batting for Minister Group Dhaka against the Khulna Tigers in the Bangladesh T20 Premier League when disaster struck.

In the 15th over, Russell nudged a delivery from Thisara Perera onto the off side and took off for a quick single.

Mahedi Hasna, fielding at short third man, threw down the stumps at the strikers end but Russell’s batting partner Mohammad Mahmudullah was switched on and just made it inside his crease.

Meanwhile, assuming crisis had been averted, Russell was casually jogging to the nonstrikers end.

But in a case of extreme bad luck, the ball had actually ricocheted off the stumps at the strikers end and somehow flew down the entire pitch and knocked the bails off the stumps at Russell’s end.

You think you’ve seen it all, then this comes around..just unbelievable! #BPL2022 #Russellrunout

Russell was way out of his crease and could barely believe it when he was run-out. He could only offer a wry smile as he had to make his way back to the pavilion for seven.

Cricket fans said they had never seen anything like it as footage of the unusual run-out went viral on social media.

Former India cricketer Wasim Jaffer tweeted: “I’ve been playing cricket and watching cricket all my life. Never have I seen something like this. Just unbelievable.”

Ex-Australian captain Lisa Sthalekar said: “Well well well. This is very unlucky ….can’t believe that Russell was run out at the nonstrikers end.”

Harsh Jain added: “This is literally the FREAKIEST run-out in the history of cricket!!!”

The Khulna Tigers won the match by five wickets as they chased down the target of 183 set by Russell’s Ministry of Dakar.

While Russell was hard done by, he was fairly run out, because the ball was not dead when it hit the stumps at the nonstrikers end.

According to the laws of cricket, the ball becomes dead when:

– it is finally settled in the hands of the wicketkeeper or of the bowler

– a boundary is scored

– a batter is dismissed. The ball will be deemed to be dead from the instant of the incident causing the dismissal.
