The ongoing third Test between England and New Zealand saw a bizarre outing on Thursday. Kiwi batsman Henry Nicholls walks down the field to hit a half volley from Jack Leach, but his shot inadvertently goes straight towards Daryl Mitchell at the non-striker’s end, hits his bat and eventually goes into the hands of mid-. Off fielder Alex Lees. While the entire England team rejoiced with the lucky wicket, the unfortunate dismissal gave netizens a good time as well.

Former India cricketer Sachin Tendulkar was also among those who reacted to the video. Sharing his views on being dismissed, Tendulkar joked that in “gully cricket” a non-striker batsman would have been declared out instead of a striker.

“In gully cricket, we declare the non-striker out,” the cricket legend said with a zany face emoji.

For England, Jack Leach recorded five wickets (5/100), while Stuart Broad provided them with good support with figures of 3/62.


England, in turn, were 55/6 at one stage as Trent Boult (3/73) ran through his top order and Neil Wagner (2/53) did enough damage in the middle. However, Jonny Bairstow’s 130 not out and Jamie Overton’s 89 not out turned the match in favor of England. The duo put on an unbeaten 209 for the sixth wicket to put England in a better position by the end of the second day’s play.

The Three Lions ended Day 2 on 264/6, thus leaving New Zealand behind by 65 runs.
