"How's this lucky" - Sikandar Raza slams commentator for his remark during Zimbabwe vs Australia 3rd ODI
Zimbabwe defeated Australia by 3 wickets in the third ODI at Townsville on 3rd tge September. However, Australia won the three-match ODI series 2-1. The Kangaroos will now play a three-match ODI series against New Zealand at home from September 6.
Talking about the third ODI against Zimbabwe, the Australian team, who came to bat first, were all out for 141 runs in 31 overs. In this match, David Warner scored the highest 94 runs for Australia. For Zimbabwe leg-spinner Ryan Burl took 5 wickets for 10 runs in 3 overs. He took the wickets of Glenn Maxwell, Ashton Agar, David Warner, Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood.
On the fourth ball of the 27th over of the Australian innings, Burl made Glenn Maxwell his victim. Leg spinner Burl bowls the ball to the pads of Glenn Maxwell as he tried to play a sweep shot on it, but the ball went up in the air, taking the edge of the bat, which was easily caught by bowler Burl and sent Maxwell back to the pavilion.
As soon as he caught this catch, a commentator from Fox Cricket said, 'Look, he got the wicket by luck! Burl also knew that it was not the wicket-taking ball, just luck favored him." This statement from the commentator did not go down well with Zimbabwe team player Sikandar Raza and he questioned it by tweeting on social media.
Sikander Raza questioned the commentator's comment on social media and said, "How's this a lucky one, please someone help me out here."
