Feb 11, 2024

West Indies batsman Alzarri Joseph survived despite being run out in a bizarre incident during the second T20I against Australia in Adelaide on Sunday. During the 19th over of the West Indies innings, Joseph went for a quick single, but Mitchell Marsh's throw was extremely fast and bowler Spencer Johnson uprooted the bails while being just short of the batsman's crease. However, the batsman was not given out as none of the Australian players, including the bowler, appealed for it. After the replays were shown on the big screen, Marsh started celebrating but the umpire did not change his decision.

Australian all-rounder Tim David was heard saying, “This is ridiculous” after the umpire's decision.

“No umpire shall give out to a batsman, even if he is out under the Laws, unless an appeal is made by the fielder. This shall not prevent a batsman who is out under any of the Laws from leaving the wicket without an appeal. has been made. However, note the provisions of 31.7,' the rule says.

Talking about the match, with the help of Glenn Maxwell's century in 50 balls, Australia defeated West Indies by 34 runs. The 35-year-old player was in tremendous form and hit eight sixes and 12 fours in his stormy innings of unbeaten 120 runs in 55 balls.

This took Australia to 241-4 and in reply the visiting team could score only 207-9 runs thanks to 63 runs from captain Rovman Powell.

“It was good fun, that's for sure. There's always good batting here, we saw in the Big Bash how good the wickets were during the tournament,” Maxwell said.

“The wicket was good and true. I have always relied on my arm speed and it came in handy today. I always give myself the best chance and it feels good to play a positive innings.”

The host team won the first match in Hobart by 11 runs, while one match is yet to be played in Perth on Tuesday.
