A hilarious series of events were witnessed during a cricket match being played under the banner of the England and Wales Cricket Board(ECB). In the video of the incident which has gone viral, as the bowler delivered the ball following which the batsman hit it towards the long-on, after which both the batsmen at the crease took a stride looking to steal a single. As the batsmen stepped out of their crease hesitantly, the fielder ran out the non-striker with a direct hit at the wickets.
Following the dismissal, the outgoing batsman looked dejected and threw his bat in anger. Unfortunately, the bat hit the other batsman who was at strike and gave a hefty blow to him on his head. The dismissed batsman then apologised to his partner and went on to check on him.

He further mentioned that the players are using white pads for coloured clothing. He concluded by saying that did he miss anything other than the edge, the comical run-out, and the bat slipping out of the non-striker’s hand.READ | England vs India: Sourav Ganguly reveals why BCCI wants completion of 5th Test
