With South Africa’s Faf Du Plesis throwing up his bat today in the 1st T20 match in Bangladesh tour of South Africa, we try to look back to some of the funny incidents where players left their bats behind the ball itself:


It was a game between England and Prime Minister’s XI where Moeen Ali’s bat left him awe-struck. 

Watch here:

3) Angelo Matthews:

The current Sri Lanka skipper is known for patience to hold onto the innings, but what if he can’t even hold onto his bat? It was New Zealand that the Lankans were facing and what how Matthew’s bat took an air-ride:

2) MS Dhoni:

From one skipper to another, it’s our very own MS Dhoni at no. 2. Watch how he joins the league of batless awestruck moments. 

1) Mark Richardson:

To top the list, it’s Mark Richardson with a weird way of throwing his bat. The ball had already been hit, runs had already been taken, but it Mark was trying to accurate the shot by mocking it yet another time, and he ended up losing it.

Don’t miss his expressions to have a good laugh:

Enjoy as the bats fly all around and be sure you have a helmet on !
