Michael Nether’s insane juggling boundary catch in the Big Bash League on Sunday left the world divided on whether it was a legal ejection or a six.
During the Sydney Sixers’ game against the Brisbane Heat, Nether took the catch and tripped over the ropes when Jordan Silk sliced Mark Stickety high into Gabba’s extra cover boundary.
When he did so, he tried to get the ball back within bounds, only to divert it further over the boundary which forced him to tap the ball to the other side of the rope. Lift your feet in the air before catching the catch.
A televised referee confirmed the sending off and ruled that Nessel was sent off because his foot had not crossed the ropes and touched the ground when he had the ball.
Neser told 7Cricket: [Matt] Renshaw did it years ago. I wasn’t sure if they changed the rules so I thought I’d give it a try. ”
