WATCH: Ben Laughlin registers sensational caught and bowled to dismiss Clive Rose in BBL 2019-20

Ben Laughlin registers sensational caught and bowled: Heat’s veteran pacer put on display a fantastic all-round effort.

During the 29th match of the ongoing ninth season of the Big Bash League between Brisbane Heat and Hobart Hurricanes in Brisbane, Brisbane Heat pacer Ben Laughlin put on display a fantastic fielding effort to dismiss Hobart Hurricanes spinner Clive Rose.

It all happened on the fourth delivery of the 17th over when Rose failed to read a slower delivery from the bowler. The batsman’s attempt of guiding the ball towards the leg side saw him top-edging it back to Laughlin who stopped on time in his follow through and dived to his right to register a sensational one-handed caught and bowled.

Coming in to bat at No. 8 in the 15th over, Rose ended up scoring 5 (5) with the help of one four. Laughlin, 37, picked his second wicket in the form of Rose. It is worth mentioning that the veteran bowler had earlier dismissed Hobart batsman David Miller (2) in the seventh over.

Having registered bowling figures of 4-0-21-2, Laughlin played a vital role in restricting the visitors to 126/9 in 20 overs. Other than Laughlin, Heat pacer Josh Lalor also impressed with the ball in hand as he picked three wickets in his four overs.

After Hurricanes captain Matthew Wade won the toss and chose to bat, Hobart posted a mediocre 126/9 in 20 overs on the back of Wade’s 14th T20 half-century. Playing his first match of the tournament, the southpaw scored 61 (46) with the help of three fours and two sixes.

It was a match-winning 60-run partnership for the sixth wicket between Jimmy Peirson (23) and Ben Cutting (43) which guided the hosts to victory in the penultimate over.
