In some of the wildest scenes ever witnessed on a cricket field, when the Bangladesh all-rounder Mehidy Hasan was seen being stretchered off the field after missing a straightforward catch as the ball went on to hit him as he stood watching. The commentators suspected that Mehidy Hasan lost sight of the ball in the background of the crowd, but to those watching, the incident looked pretty funny as he made no effort to catch the ball at gully even as the ball came straight at him.

The incident that happened took place on the second ball of South Africa’s second innings in the Test at Gqeberha. South African opener Sarel Erwee guided the ball to the gully where Mehidy Hasan stood stationary and he wasn’t even watching the ball as though it was headed in some other direction.

The video went viral on social media with the reactions being hilarious. Some called it the worst dropped catch ever as Mehidy Hasan had no clue about the whereabouts of the ball even as the ball was coming straight at him.
