BPL 2019/20: Krishmar Santokie Bowls Outrageous Wide, Follows Up With Huge No-Ball – Watch Video

Remember Krishmar Santokie? The little-known left-arm pacer who represented West Indies in 2014 T20 World Cup. After more than five years, the 34-year-old hogged the limelight for all wrong reasons on the opening day of the Bangladesh Premier League 2019/20.

Playing for Sylhet Thunder in the opening match of the season, Santokie delivered two worst deliveries in the history of the game. He bowled an outrageous wide ball and followed up with a massive no-ball in the same over.

Bowling the second over of the match, Santokie gave just one run on the first two balls before bowling the outrageous wide ball that pitched way outside the leg stump. It would have been a definite four byes but wicketkeeper Mohammad Mithun saved the extra runs by diving to full length.

Two balls later, Santokie delivered a huge no-ball as his foot landed a metre ahead of the popping crease. He finished his jump after crossing the stumps and his right leg landed way outside the crease. Fernando couldn’t capitalise on the free hit that followed but hit the final delivery of the over for a six.
