These days the English cricket team is on the tour of Netherlands, where the three-match ODI series is going on. A funny incident happened during the first match being played in Amstelvin. English batsman David Malan hit such a six that the ball fell into the bushes outside the field. These forest-like bushes were so dense that the ball was lost. But whether it is called mismanagement or something else, instead of the new ball, the search for the same missing ball started.
The match had to be stopped for a while. The extent was reached when the fielders of Netherlands also started looking for the ball. All this incident was being shown on live TV. After winning the toss, England decided to bat first. After the early dismissal of Jason Roy, David Malan and Philip Salt took the lead. Once the two settled at the crease, Malan’s super show began.
In the eighth over, Peter Seelar hit such a lofty six at long off that the ball got lost in the bushes. Soon the ground staff got involved in the search operation. Some fielders standing on the boundary also came to help. The whole incident was captured on TV. Live the whole world was watching this funny incident. Even before the start of the tour, captain Eoin Morgan had said that this series will be like a launch pad for the World T20.
Malan hits century
David Malan, who came to bat at number three, scored a century. He completed the first century of his career in 91 balls. Now he has also become the third England cricketer to score a century in all three formats. Before Malan, only Joss Butler and female batter Heather Knight have been able to do such a feat.
