Strange incident happened in WBBL

In the Women's Big Bash League, a match was played between Sydney Sixers and Brisbane Heat on Tuesday. During Sydney's batting, Amelia was bowling the 10th over. During this over, Amelia Kar tried to catch a ball when she had a towel in her hand. As soon as the ball hit the towel, the on-field umpire took action and imposed a penalty of five runs on Brisbane. Actually, stopping the ball like this is against the rules. Let us tell you that Amelia Karr is a New Zealand player. She has played 65 ODIs and 65 T20s for New Zealand so far.

According to Rule 28.2.1 of the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), the main cricket rule-making body, if a fielder uses any clothing, gloves, helmet, goggles, etc. other than his body to stop the ball, then the opposing team 5 runs are given as penalty. Apart from penalty runs, if the batsman scores runs by running, then those runs are also added.

Sydney Sixers, who set out to chase the target, achieved this target with 1 ball remaining. Gardner scored the highest score of 36 runs for Sydney.
