While Brendon Taylor appeared to be on track for a big score and was on 46 at the time of his departure, it was a huge setback not only because it was a big wicket but also because of the way in which it fell.

Batsmen have devised a variety of methods to get out over the years. Despite this, the game continues to surprise onlookers, which is why it is such a popular sport around the world. Fans in Harare watched yet another strange means of getting out on Sunday during the ongoing second ODI between Zimbabwe and Bangladesh, and it was none other than the home team captain Brendon Taylor. While Taylor appeared to be on track for a big score and was on 46 at the time of his departure, it was a huge setback not only because it was a big wicket but also because of the way in which it fell.

Taylor attempted to play a ramp shot with the second delivery of Bangladesh’s Shoriful Islam’s 25th over, but he failed to make any contact with the bat. However, those viewing it live on television were perplexed since the umpires appeared to be checking something.

Then it was revealed, much to the chagrin of Zimbabwe fans, that Taylor had been an outstruck wicket. After missing the hit, the 35-year-old veteran cricketer swung his bat and played a shadow practise shot, unaware that his bat lift had dislodged the bails behind him. The dismissal video has gone popular on the internet.

Watch the video here:

Bangladesh has already taken a 1-0 lead in the three-match series after winning the first match by 155 runs. The Bangla Tigers batted first and scored 276/9 before dismissing the hosts for just 121 runs. Liton Das, who struck a magnificent century, and Shakib Al Hasan, who achieved yet another five-wicket haul (5/30) and surpassed Mashrafe Mortaza to become Bangladesh’s all-time leading wicket-taker in ODIs, were the standout players for Bangladesh.

Meanwhile, after playing his 200th match for the national team in the first ODI, Taylor expressed his gratitude. He became the fifth Zimbabwean to play 200 ODIs, but as a seasoned campaigner, he would be disappointed with the way in which he was dismissed in his 201st ODI appearance.
