Hilton Cartwright run-out vs Queensland: Watch Western Australia batsman gets hilariously dismissed at Carrara Oval

Hilton Cartwright run-out vs Queensland: The Western Australian batsman became part of a shambolic batting collapse.

During the 16th match of the ongoing Marsh Cup between Queensland and Western Australia at the Carrara Oval, Queensland pacer Xavier Bartlett ran out Western Australia batsman Hilton Cartwright in a hilarious manner.

It all happened on the penultimate delivery of the 46th over when Cartwright missed a Bartlett delivery but decided to ran a leg bye. A miscommunication with non-striker Nathan Coulter-Nile in addition to Cartwright slipping on the pitch saw Bartlett collect the ball and dislodge the bails at the striker’s end.

Coming in to bat at No. 4 in the 44th over, Cartwright ended up scoring 9 (8) with the help of one four. The 27-year old batsman became part of a shambolic batting collapse which saw the visitors losing seven wickets for 24 runs to lose the match by 26 runs.

After Western Australia captain Shaun Marsh won the toss and put the hosts in to bat, Queensland scored 268-10 in 50 overs. Marnus Labuschagne, who came in to bat at No. 3 in the 17th over, top-scored for the home team with 87 (89) with the help of eight fours. With bowling figures of 9-0-50-4, all-rounder Marcus Stoinis was the pick of the bowlers for the visitors.

A magnificent 152-run partnership for the third wicket between Marsh (85) and Cameron Bancroft (72) had put Western Australia on the winning track but their middle-order falling apart costed them the match.

While fast bowler Michael Neser picked up three wickets for Queensland, Mark Steketee and Bartlett contributed with a couple of wickets each.
