There is a plethora of incidents in the past when the fans have witnessed crazy moments which take all the limelight from nowhere. Kumar Dharmasena, a former cricketer now turned into an umpire from Sri Lanka, sustained a strong blow from an Irish fielder during their game against Scotland after the latter’s direct hit attempt at stumps struck his leg on the rebound.

Ireland and Scotland are locking horns with each other in a crucial qualifying round match of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2022 in Hobart. Batting first, Scotland could not have as resounding start as they would have hoped for, scoring 25/1 after four overs.

Till that point, there did not seem to be anything happening in the game, as the Irish bowlers maintained the discipline until Kumar Dharmasena stepped up and added some energy to it.

It was the last ball of the fourth over, bowled by Joshua Little which Michael Jones failed to strike properly, resulting in the ball only reaching short cover. An Irish fielder, after watching Jones set to complete a quick run, picked up the ball and hit straight to the bowler’s end wickets. The throw broke the stumps, but only after Jones reached the crease
