You must have heard the saying ‘leave the catch, lose the match’. But the incident of dropping a catch on the last ball and losing the match is rarely seen on the cricket field. Something similar happened on the last ball of the match played between Kent and Surrey on June 20, in the T4 Blast tournament, which will once again convince you that “cricket is a game of uncertainties”. In fact, in the match against Kent, Surrey needed 1 run on the last ball to win. In such a situation, the Kent bowler had no chance to save the match. The bowler had only one chance that he was successful in getting the match tied by dismissing the batsman.
Actually, when bowler Michael Hogan was about to bowl the last ball of the over, Jamie Smith was on strike.
From here, the match was completely in Surrey’s favor. Kent’s team could tie the match only when the batsman was out. Michael Hogan’s last ball hit the batsman full toss on the off stump, on which Batter shot in the air towards the point, where the fielders were present. But luck was not with Kent’s team. Due to which the fielder dropped an easy catch and the batsman ran away and took a run.
In this way, Surrey’s team managed to win the match on the last ball. But if it was caught, the match could have been tied. At the same time, the bowler grabbed his head after seeing the catch missing on his ball. The bowler could not believe that this could also happen. At the same time, the fielder was seen lying on the field for a while in frustration. The bowlers were also seen sitting on the crease and showing their disappointment.
