The moment we feel we have seen it all in the world of cricket, some strange on-field occurrence ends up baffling all of us. Like how a Maharashtra-based team ended up winning a game with a ball to spare in spite of requiring six runs off the last delivery. How? The bowler managed to bowl six wide deliveries on the trot, handing the game to the batting side, which had probably lost all hope of winning the match. This incident certainly puts to test our cricketing trivia.
