BBL: Batsman or Kiteboarder… Ball hangs on roof, hits stadium and returns, umpire takes this decision


Sydney: A strange incident happened in Australia’s Big Bash League, i.e. BBL. The batsman played a very high shot and the ball went straight and hit the roof of the stadium. When the ball came down, everyone was looking at the umpire. The fielding voice was expected to declare it a dead ball, but the umpire raised both hands to indicate a six, after which a new discussion began.

Let me tell you in detail. Actually, there was a clash between the Melbourne Stars and the Melbourne Renegades on Saturday. In the third over of the Stars’ innings, wicketkeeper batsman Dr Clarke hit Renegades pacer Will Sutherland out of the sky to make him look up. The ball hit the roof of the stadium and landed inside the 30-yard circle. The field umpire immediately signaled for a six.

A similar incident occurred 13 overs later when all-rounder Beau Webster hit Tom Rodgers on the roof. Here the ball falls close to the pitch but again gets six runs. The decision was criticized by others, including Renegades captain Aaron Finch. He said, ‘It could have been two easy catches tonight. They both stood straight. Both would be out.

By the way, this will be called Aaron Finch’s double standard, because this law was also created because of him. During BBL-2, the rules were changed only because of Finch. Finch’s shot for a six hit the roof of the stadium and was declared a dead ball. Sixers were given in such cases after the rules were changed due to controversy.
