Jamaican all-rounder, Andre Russell was dismissed in an unusual manner on Friday in the ongoing match of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) match between Khulna Tigers and Minister Group Dhaka. The incident took place in the 15th over when the fielder’s throw at the striker’s end dislodged the bails, and the ball got redirected after hitting the stumps at the bowler’s end, ending Russell’s innings.

Russell nudged the ball bowled by KT’s Thisara Perera to third man and called for a single in the last ball of the 15th over. Non-striker Mahmudullah raced towards the line before the throw came in and hit the stumps at the striker’s end.

However, the ball changed direction, went straight to stumps at the non-striker’s end, and dislodged the bails. Andre Russell had still not reached by that time and was declared out.

Here is the video of the dismissal:

Dhaka Platoon kept clawing their way back in the game and managed to put up a target of 184 runs for Khulna Tigers. Minster Dhaka finished a solid batting inning on 183/6, the openers provided a good start and captain Riyad got quick runs at the death. But the innings will be remembered for Dre Russ’s freak runout.
