CPL 2017: St Lucia Stars batsman Andre Fletcher had a lucky escape as the ball took a big chunk of the leg stump but the bails remained intact during a match against Trinbago Knight Riders.
This happened in the 7th over of the Stars’ innings when Knight Riders left-arm spinner Khary Pierre bowled a straight delivery to Andre Fletcher. The right handed opener missed the delivery completely and the bowler jumped in joy. Fletcher immediately looked back onto his stumps, but they remained undisturbed.
The ball actually hit the leg stump but the bails didn’t come off the groove. The LED lightsflashed for a fraction of a second as the ball deflected the leg stump and went to the boundary.
The umpire signaled it as byes and the bowler couldn’t believe his luck.
