Harare: In the second ODI match between Zimbabwe and Bangladesh played in Harare on Sunday, such a strange incident was seen, which surprised everyone. Zimbabwe captain Brendan Taylor threw his wicket due to his stupidity. Looking at the way Brendan Taylor got out, it seemed that he had intentionally axed his feet.
The batsman himself hit the ax on his feet
In fact, in the 25th over of Zimbabwe’s innings, Brendan Taylor got out in a strange way, which is difficult to believe. It happened that Zimbabwe captain Brendan Taylor missed the upper cut on the ball of Bangladesh fast bowler Shoriful Islam and after the ball went out, Taylor took the bat backwards while practicing this shot and bat. Hit him in the stump.
The batsman threw the wicket in foolishness
After this, after the appeal of Bangladesh players, the on-field umpire sent the decision to the third umpire and he gave a hit wicket to Brendan Taylor. This is not the first time in cricket, when a batsman has been dismissed like this, before that in 1998, Australia’s great batsman Mark Waugh also lost his wicket in a similar manner in Test against South Africa.
