New Zealand’s young left-handed batsman Mark Chapman got out in the unluckiest possible way during the 5th T20I against Australia in the tri-nation series on Friday.

On the last ball of 18th over, Billy Stanlake bowled a lethal bouncer from round the wickets to Chapman. The 23-year-old tried to pull the ball but it extracted extra bounce from the pitch and struck him on the helmet. Unfortunately, the helmet got knocked off his head and hit the wickets.

However, Chapman smiled and walked off the field after one of the most unfortunate dismissals (hit wicket) in T20I cricket.
