Dale Steyn hilariously teases Tom Andrews: The veteran fast bowler from Stars saw the funny side of a run-out against Renegades.

During the 19th match of the ongoing ninth season of the Big Bash League between Melbourne Stars and Melbourne Renegades in Melbourne, Melboune Stars fast bowler Dale Steyn was seen hilariously teasing Melbourne Renegades all-rounder Tom Andrews before running him out.

It all happened on the second delivery of the last over when Renegades all-rounder Will Sutherland missed a straight delivery from Steyn. It was at this time that Andrews down the striker’s end in an attempt to sneak a leg bye.

With no response from Sutherland and Stars wicket-keeper Peter Handscomb throwing the ball back to Steyn, the 36-year old player had enough time to both tease and run-out Andrews at the non-striker’s end.

Coming in to bat at No. 9 in the 18th over, Andrews could only contribute with 3 (4) before getting out. Having registered economical bowling figures of 4-0-16-2, Steyn put on display another impressive spell. Other than Steyn, Stars spinners in Sandeep Lamichhane and Adam Zampa dismissed three and two batsmen each.

After Stars captain Glenn Maxwell won the toss and invited Renegades in to bat, the visitors were restricted to 142/9 in their allotted quota of 20 overs.

Chasing a 143-run target, Stars sealed the chase in the penultimate over on the back of all-rounder Marcus Stoinis’ 10th T20 half-century. Having scored 68* (55) with the help of seven fours and a six, Stoinis shared a match-winning 68-run stand for the third wicket with Maxwell (40*).
