The Melbourne Stars beat the Melbourne Renegades by 6 wickets on Sunday.
Sam Harper and Liam Hatcher crashed during the match.
In the 42nd game of the Big Bash League (BBL) 2020-21, Melbourne stars have conquered Melbourne Renegades by six wickets at Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on Sunday.
During the match, a display of sportsmanship was spotted during a horrific collision incident between two players.
It all happened in the 17th when Renegades’ Sam harper tried to play a terrible scoop, but it failed and ultimately ran for a single. Harper searched for the ball as she climbed straight up as the Stars pitcher Liam Hatcher stormed the ball to stop the race. In the process, the two men collided.
But in a beautiful display of sportsmanship, the Stars outfielder Billy stanlake didn’t mind stumps as Harper was way short of the fold. Harper and Hatcher moved closer and hit each other back.
Meanwhile, captain of the stars Glenn maxwell Roasted them both in a hilarious pair of sleds as he checked to see if they were okay.
“You have to take care of yourself. If you keep trying to get it on guys, seriously, “ Maxwell said to Harper.
Maxwell then ran to Hatcher and said: “Dude, he’s (Harper) half your size, how are you going to get beaten by him?”
Here is the video:
“Well, that was carnage, wasn’t it?”
“He’s half your size, how are you going to get beaten by him ?!”
It’s awesome 😂
