If you’re a bowler and you’re going to celebrate a wicket, you probably should make sure the batsman is out.
Ali Khan found that out the hard way in the Caribbean Premier League on Thursday.
The Trinbago Knight Riders bowler was certain he had Andrew Fletcher caught behind for what would have been just the second wicket of his T20 career.
The right-arm quick threw his arms out ‘Hayne-Plane’ style as he ran down the wicket, before grabbing the team crest on his shirt and giving it a big kiss.
But there was one small problem – wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin hadn’t caught the ball.
As you can see above, the West Indian grassed the simple chance, leaving Khan looking rather foolish.
Thankfully for Khan, his embarrassment didn’t last too long, bowling Fletcher in his next over.
Warner makes horror start to Caribbean campaign
David Warner has had a shaky start to life in the CPL, kicking off with a brutal dropped catch on debut.
The 31-year-old was deep in the outfield when batsman DJ Bravo smashed the ball into the air, and he managed to make an absolute meal of it.
Warner is well-known for his fielding abilities, but in this instance, it wasn’t meant to be for the former Australian vice-captain, leaving the commentator stunned.
“What happened there, David Warner?” asked the broadcast commentator.
“He must’ve lost it in the lights because he is one of the gun fielders in world cricket.”
On top of the fielding mishap, he didn’t fair to well with bat in hand either, managing just nine runs from nine balls.
Warner’s stumps were skittled when he misread the length of a delivery from all-rounder Javon Searles, a Barbadian who featured in this year’s Indian Premier League.
Warner and Steve Smith, who signed up with Barbados as a late replacement for Bangladesh international Shakib Al Hasan, are both taking part in the Twenty20 tournament.
