In the second ODI, the Black Caps found themselves in a challenging situation, with a score of 219/8, and their lower-order batsmen had the task of adding some crucial runs to set a respectable target.
On the flip side, Bangladesh was eager to take advantage of this opportunity and dismiss the remaining Black Caps quickly. Amidst the intense cricketing action, an unexpected run-out scenario unfolded.
During the 46th over, Hasan Mahmud, the pace bowler, inadvertently dislodged the bails with his foot during his run-up and immediately appealed to the umpire, Marais Erasmus. Upon reviewing the replays, it was clear that non-striker Ish Sodhi’s back leg had strayed beyond the crease as he ventured down the pitch, resulting in his dismissal.
However, an unusual turn of events occurred when Tigers’ captain Litton Das and Hasan decided to recall the 30-year-old Sodhi to the crease after a brief discussion with the umpires.
Ish, who had already begun walking back to the pavilion, graciously returned to the crease. In a heartwarming gesture, he embraced Hasan, expressing his appreciation for the sportsmanship shown. This unexpected incident left cricket fans on Twitter amazed and delighted by the display of sportsmanship and camaraderie between the players.
