In the world of cricket, you must have seen and heard more than one strange incident, but have you ever seen 7 runs scored on only one ball without a no-ball and wide ball. Something similar happened in the second test match between New Zealand and Bangladesh, where the Bangladeshi team spent seven runs in a ball.
7 runs in one ball made like this
The second test match between New Zealand and Bangladesh has started from Sunday. BAN won the toss and decided to bowl first. During the 26th over of New Zealand’s innings, 7 runs were scored off a ball. Actually, this over was being done by fast bowler Ibadat Hussain and Will Young played a shot on the last ball of the over, the ball reached the second slip, but the fielder dropped the catch.
After hitting the fielder’s hand, the ball started going in the direction of third man, meanwhile Will Young and Tom Latham ran to complete three runs. Before the ball touched the boundary line, Taskin Ahmed did not allow a boundary and threw the ball to the wicketkeeper. Wicketkeeper Nurul Hasan also threw the ball to the other end, but the ball went outside the boundary line, shining the bowler and fielder.
In this way, first a simple catch of Will Young was missed on one ball, then due to over throw, he also got four runs for free. In fact, this is rarely seen in Test cricket. Young was dismissed after scoring 54 runs. He added 148 runs with Tom Latham for the first wicket.
Latham scored a century after 29 innings
In the first day’s play, New Zealand team captain Tom Latham completed his 12th century in the Test format while batting brilliantly. Latham scored a century in Tests after 29 innings. The last century he scored was against England in the year 2019.
In the first test, the Kiwi team had to face defeat by 8 wickets at the hands of Bangladesh. This was Bangladesh’s first win against New Zealand in all three formats. The second Test for NZ after a loss in the first match is nothing short of do or die. If the Kiwi team loses or draws this match, then BAN will capture the test series.
