Sachin Tendulkar Trolled Henry Nicholls In His Typical Bambaiya Style: England’s Jack Leach was left stunned after taking the wicket of Henry Nicholls in bizarre fashion on Day1 of the ongoing third Test against New Zealand at Headingley. What has been called as one of the most bizarre ways of dismissal, became the highlight of the game as no one could understand what really happened on the field.
Henry Nicholls Was Dismissed In The Most Bizarre Way
The incident took place in the 56th over of the opening day’s play, when Nicholls tried to dance down the track and smashed Jack Leach for a four and time the ball to perfection.
However, to his dismay, the ball deflected off non-striker Daryl Mitchell’s bat and lobbed to mid-off, and landed straight in the hands of Alex Lees.
Well within the law
While everyone was wondering whether the form of dismissal was legal or not, the official handle of the Marylebone Cricket Club said that the form of dismissal was unfortunate, but within the laws. The tweet read:
“An unfortunate dismissal? Yes. But wholly within the Laws.
Law 184.108.40.206 states it will be out if a fielder catches the ball after it has touched the wicket, an umpire, another fielder, a runner or the other batter.”

After the end of Day 1, bowler Jack Leach was left reflecting on a “silly game” as he expressed that he wasn’t happy with Henry Nicholls’s mode of dismissal. He said:
“I didn’t even know if that was allowed. I don’t actually like the dismissal but I felt like I bowled pretty well to Nicholls leading up to that you just have to take it. It’s a silly game, isn’t it? That’s what it made me think: it’s a stupid game that we play. Never seen anything like it. It was very lucky for me, very unlucky for Nicholls,”
