Watch: Brainfade Moment In MLC As RCB Star Gets Run Out In Bizarre Manner
It all happened in a Major League Cricket (MLC) fixture between San Francisco Unicorns and Seattle Orcas.
It all happened in the Major League Cricket (MLC) on Sunday as San Francisco Unicorns' batter Finn Allen's bizarre run out became the talk of the town during the match against Seattle Orcas. The incident happened in the fourth over when Cameron Gannon bowled a delivery to Allen who tapped it towards short mid-wicket to steal a quick single. However, Allen took a casual stroll and Shehan Jayasuriya was alert to the situation as he picked up the ball and affected the run out, and caught the batter napping.
Allen was in a state of disbelief after his brainfade moment cost him his wicket. Notably, he was batting on 29 off just nine deliveries.
