Zimbabwe locked horns with the Netherlands in the Super 12 clash of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2022 at the Adelaide Oval. Wicketkeepers play a crucial role behind the wickets, however, Regis Chakabva failed to fulfill his duty on Wednesday with hilariously sloppy glove work giving a lifeline to Bas de Leede who had already given up.

The Netherlands registered their maiden win of the Super 12 as they defeated Zimbabwe by five wickets. The latter’s batting disappointed immensely but a sloppy fielding moment amused the spectators even more in the closing stages of the game. The Netherlands chased down the target with relative ease and the game was becoming monotonous towards the ending stages when a moment in the 18th over sent spectators into splits.

Bas de Leede was facing Sean Williams on the second ball of the over and he decided to smash the ball to get over the line with a big shot. The batter walked down the track to take a swing but completely missed the line of the ball.

Regis Chakabva had a simple opportunity to stump the batter out but he made a complete mess of chance. The wicket-keeper suffered a series of fumbles, jumbling the white Kookaburra thrice. Chakabva first failed to grab the ball cleanly and then the ball slipped from his grasp again when he tried to direct it toward the stumps.

The Zimbabwean finally collected the ball, as it was rolling away, but even then wasn’t able to disturb the stumps. Bas de Leede was well inside his crease by this point and eventually finished off the game with a boundary while advancing down the track once again.
