PSL 2018: Angry Bowler Throws Ball at Teammate to Get Attention

Cricket is said to be a gentleman’s game but we witnessed something hilarious Pakistan Super League, on Wednesday when a bowler threw the ball at a teammate for not paying attention in the ongoing edition of the game Quetta Gladiators and Lahore Qalandars.

The incident occurred between two Pakistani cricketers Sohail Khan and Yasir Shah during the PSL T20 league match between Quetta Gladiators and Lahore Qalandars. Sohail was trying to set the field according to him and Yasir — who was fielding at third man — apparently didn’t listen to his repeated calls. This angered the bowler and he threw the ball in the direction of Yasir and the ball missed the leg-spinner’s head, but he was left fuming. An angry Yasir picked up the ball and threw it back in the bowler’s direction. Former New Zealand captain Brandon McCullum had to play peacemaker to calm down the tempers.

 

Former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen saw the funny side of the incident and posted the video of the same on social media. His tweet read: I think I witnessed the funniest moment of my cricket career tonight, when the bowler couldn’t get the attention of his boundary rider & threw the ball at him on the boundary… UNBELIEVABLY HILARIOUS

Reactions from the cricketing community were similar as well.

Despite the win, Lahore occupy the last position on the PSL table with six points from nine matches. Quetta on the other hand are second with 10 points from 9 matches.
