Srinagar: In a bizarre never before seen act on professional cricket arena, Pakistan pacer Haris Rauf stepped out for batting without pads, gloves and a helmet during Big Bash League (BBL), match between Melbourne Stars and Sydney Thunder at Lavington Sports Oval in Albury on Saturday.
Haris Rauf came out to bat at No. 11 with only one ball remaining without pads, gloves, or a helmet while standing at the non-striker’s end.
However, the on-field umpires intervened, prompting Rauf to put on his gloves and helmet. Despite this, he chose not to wear his pads, prompting a commentator to express astonishment, labeling the scenario as a ‘circus’ on live broadcast.
Rauf, while at the crease, notably did not put on both of his gloves. His unconventional approach left bowler Daniel Sams, bewildered on the field.
