Australia vs South Africa One-Off T20I: Kagiso Rabada’s ball that finished at the point has to be among the worst deliveries ever in cricket. The humorous episode happened during the one-off T20I against Australia when the ball slipped out of the fast bowler’s hand when he bowled the ball. It left the bowler red-faced. Rabada was bowling to Glenn Maxwell who was on 22 off 16 at that time. Once the ball ended up at the point, Maxwell too, walked aside and had a laugh over it as the umpires came together to decide it should be called a no-ball or a dead ball. Finally, the umpires decided to call it a dead ball. Also Read - Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma-Less Team India Will Tour Sri Lanka in July For 3 ODIs And 5 T20Is, Confirms Sourav Ganguly

Meanwhile, South Africa won the T20I by 21 runs as the match was reduced to 10 overs per side due to rain.
Earlier, after winning the toss, Australia invited South Africa to have a bat. The Proteas scored 108 in their 10 overs as Faf du Plessis top-scored with 27 off 15 balls. Chasing 109 to win, Australia finished with 87/7 in their 10 overs. Maxwell scored 38 off 23 balls but that was not good enough to see them over the line as he did not get support from the other end. Tabraiz Shamsi bagged the Man of the Match for giving 12 runs off two overs and picking a wicket.
