The cricket world was left stunned by extraordinary scenes on Sunday after Georgia Voll was bowled in the Women’s National Cricket League and no one noticed.

Voll was in action for the Queensland Fire against the Tasmanian Tigers in Hobart when she was bowled by Belinda Vakarewa.

'WHAT A JOKE': Cricket world rages over 'embarrassing' scenes

'AWFUL TO SEE': Fans cringe over horrible Joe Root incident

Vakarewa's delivery just clipped the top of the off bail, which was dislodged and dropped to ground.

However Vakarewa didn't even react as wicketkeeper Rachel Priest scurried away after the ball.

Priest appeared to think that she'd knocked the bail off with her gloves, with replays showing she came very close to doing so.

However it was actually the ball that had removed the bail, but Voll survived in bizarre scenes.

“That is out,” commentator Julia Price said.

“I tell you what, I hope they’re staying at the casino - I’d be going to the casino after that!”

Voll survived for another 10 overs before skying a catch to Amy Smith off the bowling of Sarah Coyte on 31.

Fans were also left in disbelief over the strange anomaly.
