In a game of cricket, there are a lot of entertaining incidents fans witness but sometimes there are incidents that attract the eyeballs of the fans. A similar incident happened recently during a game of SA20 2023 between Sunrisers Eastern Cape and MI Cape Town on Wednesday, the 18th of January.

The Pakistan-based sports presenter Zainab Abbas was standing there near the boundary during the live commentary of the match. But all of sudden she had an unexpected fall on the ground courtesy of the boundary smashed by Marco Jansen off Sam Curran.

The incident happened on the last ball of the 13th over of the second innings when Sam Curran delivered a slower one to Marco Jansen. The latter made a room for himself and played it a bit of square that went exactly to the location where Zainab was having her stint in the live commentary. Eventually, the fall of the fielder near the boundary rope also fumbled Zainab and she fell down near the rope.

The video of this incident is now making rounds on social as soon as it was posted by Supersport TV at their official Twitter handle. Later on, Zainab also replied to the video tweet of Supersport TV.

"This is coming straight for us...Zainab Abbas, you good? CapeTown City FC your manager somehow avoided the contact!” read the caption of the video tweet posted by Supersport TV.

“I’ve survived, but now I know how it feels! get that ice pack out,” replied Zainab to the tweet.

Here’s the video followed by the response from Zainab Abbas herself:

Speaking of the match, Easter Cape skipper Aiden Markram won the toss and asked Rashid Khan’s men to bat first. MI Cape Town posted a total of 171 runs for the loss of six wickets courtesy of the half-century by wicketkeeper-batter Grant Roelofsen and a 46-run crucial knock from opener Ryan Rickelton.

While chasing the target, Sunrisers Eastern Cape managed to cross the line in 19.3 overs for the loss of eight wickets and won the match by two wickets with three balls to spare. Marco Jansen won the ‘player of the match award for his match-defining knock.
