New Delhi, Many times batsmen look very helpless in front of spin bowlers. Batters also rotate in front of the rotating balls. Many such videos often go viral on social media. One such video is currently going viral on Twitter. In this, the batsman misses reading the ball of a spin bowler and tries to leave the ball considering it wide. But, in this round the batsman leaves the ball and what happened next will leave everyone baffled. Because the batter becomes clean bold.
This incident happened in the KCC T20 Challenger Cup 2024 and the match in which it happened was between Kuwait Nationals and SBS CC team. In the second innings of the match, Kuwait’s bowler Muhammad Waqar was bowling and Beant Singh was on strike.
The ball spun so much that the batsman was bowled.
Muhammad bowled a flighted ball. His ball went so high in the air that the batsman felt that the ball would come as a full toss above his waist. Therefore, Beant Singh tried to hit a big shot on this ball by coming out of the off stump. But, while doing so, he had completely moved away from the wicket and the ball came inwards quickly after falling outside the off stump and Beant Singh was bowled. At once he could not believe that he had become bold. But, when he looked towards the wicket he was convinced. After this, the happiness on the bowler’s face could be read.
