Amidst a few cricketing highlights this ODI encounter was marked by its plethora of bumbling horrors of considerable magnitude.
One … Kusal Perera’s brain fade which left him stranded and run-out — that when he was batting well …. 18.1 a wicket thrown away! Back of a length on leg, and tapped to midwicket. Perera wants the double, but his partner hasn’t responded, and the throw from deep mid-wicket is well aimed at the bowler’s end. To be fair to Fernando, there was no two there 104/2
Two …. Vandersay’s first nine balls = enough to render anyone purple!
Three …. Hetmyer’s second brain-fade ….17.5 what on earth was that? Direct hit, gone! Hetmyer dismissed Tickled it to short third and set off on a run without ever lifting his head up to see if his partner was following through. When he did he was more than halfway down, and a direct hit meant he wasn’t even in the frame. West Indies are rocking now …..84/4
Four ….. 44.1 third run-out of the innings! At least it’s not Pooran, who is currently on 99. This was flicked to short fine leg, and Pooran had ran across despite Allen not moving. Allen was ball-watching, and when he saw Pooran reach the other end, he scampered across to ensure that Pooran isn’t run-out. Allen sacrifices his wicket, but did West Indies need to throw a wicket away at this stage? Probably not… 282/7
