Video: You can't get more unlucky than Shahid Afridi
This video is an example which shows that in cricket, a lot is dependent upon luck sometimes. Pakistani batting legend Shahid Afridi was a victim of one of the unluckiest dismissals ever in cricket.
BOOM BOOM Afridi was not even allowed to stay on the crease for two minutes. The incident happened in Asia Cup 2012, in a match between the hosts Bangladesh and Pakistan.
Afridi came to bat and the bowler was Shakib Al Hasan. He played straight and the ball went into Shakib’s hands, who fumbled, juggled and tossed it up. When everyone seemed sure that he would drop it, the ball touched the non-striker batsman Misbah-ul-Haq, which gave Shakib enough time to catch it again.
This was the first time ever that a batsman had got out in such a crazy manner.
Here’s the video of the dismissal:
