There has been a plethora of occasions when a batter has got out on terrible deliveries in T20s but sometimes incidents can be so ridiculous that even the bowler is left embarrassed by his success.

India got some much-needed batting practice on Australian pitches against the hosts’ stellar bowling lineup in Brisbane in a World T20 warm-up fixture on Monday. After KL Rahul’s early blitz, Suryakumar Yadav garnered a lot of limelight with his quick half-century, helping India post a total of 186/7.

The Men in Blue seem a few runs short of the par score and even though they seemed destined to add a few more to their tally, the bizarre dismissal of Yadav in the last over prevented Team India from going gung-ho at the end. In tremendous form having six boundaries and a maximum already, SKY was looking to clear the fence and got the perfect opportunity served to him on a platter on the fourth delivery of the 20th over.

Kane Richardson bowled a slow full toss above ankle length which seemed like easy pickings for Suryakumar Yadav. However, Yadav was deceived by the change of pace and failed to execute his flick toward the square leg already before the ball got near him anyway. In the end, the ball took the bottom edge of his willow, even as the face of Yadav’s bat still faced the leg side, and the ball went straight to the bowler.

Kane Richardson took the catch and immediately covered his face with his hand and broke out in an embarrassing laugh. The 32-year-old batter joined in as well during his walk back to the pavilion, aware of how amusing the wicket was to the players and the spectators. Just before the dismissal, Suryakumar Yadav was heard saying on the stump mic that he is has got bored of hitting the ball.
