Cricket moments: A bizarre way to take a wicket
This is one of weirdest dismissals you have ever seen in cricket.
Pakistani left-arm spinner Zafar Gohar has been in fine form while playing county cricket in England for Gloucestershire County Cricket Club. He is an important part of the team as he is playing a vital role in the success of the club.
After remaining wicket-less while playing the only test match for Pakistan against New Zealand earlier this year. He has made a come back to perform extremely well as he plays for Gloucestershire.
Zafar proves himself a running havoc for opponents as he has claimed 17 dismissals in last three innings–the best of his cricket career.
In Gloucestershire’s seven-wicket victory over Durham, Zafar bagged six dismissals which ensured the team’s second-place finish in Division Two.
His sixth wicket in the final innings was the moment when everyone was surprised as the wicket came in the odd fashion and is not being witnessed more often in cricket.
While Durham batsman tried to sweep Zafar’s delivery, it hit the helmet of the short leg fielder Tom Lace which bounced and landed directly into the hands of the wicketkeeper resulting in bizarre dismissal .
