Janneman Malan goofs up simple run-out: The Blitz’s fielder committed a blunder to miss an easy run-out chance in Cape Town.
During the 15th match of the ongoing second season of Mzansi Super League between Cape Town Blitz and Paarl Rocks in Cape Town, Cape Town fielder Janneman Malan put on display a goof-up to miss a simple run-out chance to dismiss Paarl Rocks opening batsman Henry Davids.
It all happened on the penultimate delivery of the seventh over when Rocks captain Faf du Plessis hit a pull off Glitz fast bowler Wahab Riaz. In what was a well-timed shot, it went straight to Malan at mid-wicket.
With non-striker David backing up too far, Malan had an easy chance to run him out at the non-striker’s end. Having said that, it wasn’t to be as Malan’s throw was both hilarious and harmless as it was nowhere near the stumps. No Cape Town fielder backing up at the non-striker’s end further didn’t work for the hosts.
After Blitz captain Quinton de Kock won the toss and put the visitors in to bat, Paarl ended up scoring 163/8 in their allotted quota of 20 overs.
Davids, who opened the batting with Cameron Delport (8), top-scored for his team with 46 (33) with the help of five fours and a six.
With bowling figures of 4-0-35-2, pacer Sisanda Magala was the pick of the bowlers for Cape Town. Apart from Magala, veteran fast bowler Dale Steyn also picked up two wickets and remaining all other bowlers taking piece each.
