AB de Villiers got out caught by the bowler against a delivery that pitched twice before he hit it. Check out the video here:
AB de Villiers was adjudged out despite the ball pitching twice before reaching him. After miscuing a delivery from Mohammad Ashraful, de Villiers stood his ground, convinced that he wasn’t out even when the bowler had caught the ball. But after taking his own sweet time over the decision, Steve Bucknor sent de Villiers towards the pavilion. According to Law 24, section 6 states that the umpire shall call a no-ball only if it bounce more than twice before reaching the popping crease. Since the second bounce took inside the popping crease, de Villiers was declared out.
