Cricket has evolved in various ways over the years – from formats to bowling variations and batting as well. Now add dismissals as well to the list. CSA Provincial T20 Cup 2021 on Tuesday witnessed one such innovative way of departing where the batsman smashed his own stump during the match.
Chasing a wider delivery from Migael Pretorius in the Pool B match between Knights and Titans at the Mangaung Oval in Bloemfontein, batsman Ayabulela Gqamane, who was batting deep inside the crease, smashed his own stumps to walk back for 12 off 7.
Titans finished with 143 for eight in 20 overs with captain Dean Elgar top-scoring for the side with his 38-ball 41. Pretorius was the pick of the bowlers having snared three wickets for 21 runs in four overs.
Knights chased down the target with five balls to spare as Rilee Rossouw’s 51-ball 73 guided his side to a six-wicket win.
This was only the first match of Pool B in the tournament. South Western Districts finished top of the table in Pool A with two wins in three games.
