Watch: Commentators Absolutely Lose It After Comedy Of Errors From Fielding Team In European Cricket Series
The batters sneaked in three runs with the ball barely leaving the pitch area in comical scenes during a recent European League Series (ECS) match in Czech Republic.
From run-out to overthrows, the eagerness to steal a quick run can bring in all sorts of possibilities into play in the world of cricket. But there are times when trying to take a single might lead to some bizarre instances. A similar incident took place during a recent European League Series (ECS) match in Czech Republic. In a video shared by ECS on their official Twitter handle, the Vinohardy CC players can be seen making a series of howlers in the outfield, which allowed the Prague Barbarians batters -- Jahanur Hoque and Andrew Sims -- to steal three runs.
Vinohardy players had three chances to effect a run out, but made in absolute mess of things in one of the funniest cricketing videos ever seen.
"They sneaked in 3 runs out of nowhere," the European Cricket Network captioned the video on Twitter.
