BPL 2021-22: Watch – Andre Russell Gets Run Out In A Never-Before Seen Fashion
West Indian all-rounder Andre Russell was run out in the harshest ways possible during a league match between Khulna Tigers (KT) and Minister Group Dhaka (MGD) in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL).
The incident took place on the last ball of the 15th over of MGD’s innings. Russell was facing Thisara Perera when he nudged a delivery to the short third man and took off for a single.
Mahmudullah, who was at the other end, responded quickly and made it to the striker’s end comfortably. However, the throw that was fired in hit the stumps at the striker’s end before ricocheting off to the non-striker’s end.
Russell was unaware that the ball had taken a huge deflection and was heading for the stumps on his side. He was caught well short of the crease in the end. The dismissal was huge in the context of the game as Russell was just getting his eye in.

Russell was able to see the funny side of it and ended up smiling on the way back to the pavilion. MGD managed to put up 183 on the board but it wasn’t enough as the Tigers chased it down with an over to spare.
