New Delhi: A bizarre incident took place on field during South Australia and Queensland match on Wednesday in the Marsh Cup tournament. During the match, three fielders of South Australia, including skipper Travis Head tried their best to complete a catch near the boundary rope.
The incident took place on the fifth ball of the 36th over of Queensland’s innings. Michael Neser hits a shot at deep square leg off Brendan Doggett’s delivery. Three South Australia fielders tried to take the catch at the boundary line but failed. The replays also confirmed that one of the fielder’s feet had touched the boundary rope and hence the umpires ruled it a six.
