WATCH: Chadwick Walton hilariously grabs Ben Dunk in PSL 2020

Chadwick Walton hilariously grabs Ben Dunk: Kings’ wicket-keeper ended up grabbing Qalandars’ batsman instead of the ball.

During the 23rd match of the ongoing fifth season of the Pakistan Super League between Lahore Qalandars and Karachi Kings in Lahore, Karachi Kings wicket-keeper Chadwick Walton registered a hilarious moment after he grabbed Lahore Qalandars batsman Ben Dunk instead of the ball.

It all happened on the last delivery of the 10th over when Dunk’s attempt of playing a reverse sweep off Kings all-rounder Cameron Delport saw him top-edging the ball.

Anticipating a potential catching chance, Walton stepped ahead to grab the ball without actually knowing where the ball was. As a result, the 34-year old player ended up grabbing Dunk amusingly.

Chasing a 188-run target, Lahore sealed the chase in the penultimate over on the back of 140-run match-winning partnership for the third wicket between captain Sohail Akhtar (68) and Dunk. Coming in to bat at No. 4 in the ninth over, Dunk scoring 99 (40) with the help of three fours and 12 sixes changed the game altogether.

Having scored 250 runs in just five matches at an average of 83.33 and a strike rate of 201.61, 32-year old Dunk is already the third-highest run-scorer in the tournament.

After Akhtar won the toss and invited the visitors in to bat, Kings posted a dominating 187/5 in 20 overs. Alex Hales, who came out to bat at No. 3, top-scored for Kings with his 80* (48) with the help of six fours and five sixes.
