When they required only 2 runs off the final delivery, Rovman Powell hit 2 runs and steered his team to the finishing line. Waseem Muhammad was the player of the match as he notched up a match-winning knock. He scored a fantabulous 76 off 34 balls with the help of 7 fours and 6 sixes.
Rohan Mustafa reveals the real reason
Rohan Mustafa who failed to stop a boundary while he didn’t have his shirt on in a game against Northern Warriors explained the reason as to why he couldn’t stop the ball. He added that he was removing his sweater as the on-field umpires don’t take anything from pacers owing to COVID-19 rules. He further added that his shirt got stuck in the sweater.
“I was not changing jersey. I was removing my sweater and shirt got stuck in it as I was bowling next over and umpire doesn’t take anything from bowler because of Covid rules…still apologize my @TeamADCricket for letting them down !!,” he added.
