BBL 2018-19: Melbourne Renegades allrounder Ben Cutting injured himself while attempting to take a skier of Marcus Harris on zero. The incident happened in the first over of the Heats innings, when Harris skied the ball from James Pattinson high up in the air. Cutting positioned himself well under the ball and it seemed like he was in total control of it, but at the last minute, he spilled it. But, more importantly, he had hurt himself as the ball hit him flush on the nose and it started bleeding profusely. There was a debate if Cutting had the ball under his control but TV umpire decided that Harris was not out. He was later back on the field after having five stitches and passing the concussion test.
Here is the video of the catch drop:
At the time of filing the copy, the Renegades had won the game by eight wickets.
Earlier in the day, Melbourne Renegades won the toss and opt to bowl as Brisbane Heats set a total of 144/8 in their stipulated 20 overs. Usman Khan was the pick of the Renegades bowlers as he scalped three for 16 in his quota of four overs. It will not be an easy chase for Renegades as Mujeeb is in top form and will sure give migraines to the batsmen. His four overs will be crucial.
