We see a lot of funny things on the cricket field now and then, don’t we? Some dropped catches, some run outs, overthrows, many of them end on a funny note.
Something similar happened with Bangladesh where they conceded seven runs off one ball in their second and final Test against New Zealand at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch. In a ball by Ebadot Hussain in the 26th over, a chance at second slip was created but was put down by Liton Das.
However, it does not end here. After Das dropped the easy catch at slip cordon, the ball went towards third man. The batters in the meantime ran three showing great athleticism. In the meantime, more misery awaited the Bangladesh team. The throw came in at the bowler’s end and the overthrow went racing to the boundary.
This means that a good delivery, which could been a wicket-taking one, ended up conceding as many as 7 runs.
Here is the video of the same:

Former New Zealand Skipper Brendon McCullum Surprised at Bangladesh’s Ordinary Fielding Efforts
“Oh, we’re going to have a seven are we!? And the bowler’s had to chase it down from the boundary as well,” Fox Sports commentator McMillan exclaimed. “Wow, he got the nick then had to chase it down to the boundary.”
“I don’t know where to go with that one. It shelled in the slips, madness ensures and poor Ebadot Hossain just to rub salt into the wounds (chases down the overthrow). You’ve got to be kidding me,” McCullum expressed.
