‘Kya Bakwas Hai’ – Controversy sparks as Beau Webster claims six after hitting ‘roof-top’ off Tom Rogers in a BBL match

According to the new rules of cricket and the playing conditions at the moment, the umpire awarded it as a six to Beau Webster.

Melbourne Renegades and Melbourne Stars locked horns in the 41st match of the Big Bash League 2022. Both teams played this match at the Docklands Stadium in Melbourne. Apart from the action and the result of the match, what raised the eyebrows of the cricketing fans was a six claimed by Stars’ batter Beau Webster.

The incident happened on the very first ball of the 16th over in the second innings when Beau Webster was facing Renegades’ bowler Tom Rogers. The latter delivered a ball that got a good connection with Webster’s willow and he smashed the ball high that eventually ended up hitting the retracted roof in the stadium.

According to the new rules of cricket and the playing conditions at the moment, the umpire declared it as a six.

Although, this rule and the way of claiming a six didn’t go down well with the cricket fans and they immediately called it as an ‘unfair one’ for the bowlers. The fans reacted both on Twitter and Instagram where the BBL posted the official video of this moment.

Here’s the video of Beau Webster’s six:

Here’s how fans reacted on Instagram and Twitter:

Speaking of the action of the match, Melbourne Stars won the flip of the coin and asked Renegades to bat first. Riding on the half-century from wicketkeeper-batter Sam Harper and a quick knock of 44 runs from Jonathan Wells, Aaron Finch’s men managed to post a total of 162 runs for the loss of seven wickets in the allotted 20 overs. Liam Hetcher and Brody Couch scalped two wickets each for the Stars in the first innings.

While chasing the target, Stars could score only 156 runs for the loss of seven wickets in the entire 20 overs. Opener and wicketkeeper-batter Joe Clarke’s half-century knock of 59 runs went in vain as Stars lost the match by six runs.

Renegades’ pacer Kane Richardson won the ‘player of the match award for his brilliant economical bowling in favor of his team. Richardson scalped two wickets by conceding only 17 runs in his quota of four overs.
