WATCH: Australian batsman Jake Weatherald’s comical hit-wicket dismissal

Posted On / /

Cricket has seen a lot of funny dismissals in its long history. Players have often lost their wickets in a dramatic turn of events eventually. And now Australia batsman Jake Weatherland has joined the bandwagon, lately.

Jake Weatherald was out hit-wicket during a practice match between NPS and Victoria in a bizarre fashion.

The 23-year-old Weatherald was trying to drive the ball but edged it back to his pads. He lost the grip on his bat during the follow-through of the shot. The bat then slipped out of Weatherald’s hand and flew above his head to land on top of leg stump.

In a video uploaded by Cricket Australia on their Instagram account, the batsman could be seen standing in disbelief after the comical dismissal.
