During the 54th match of the ongoing ninth season of the Big Bash League between Sydney Thunder and Perth Scorchers in Sydney, Perth Scorchers wicket-keeper batsman Josh Inglis put on display his foot balls skills to run-out Sydney Thunder opening batsman Usman Khawaja.

It all happened on the penultimate delivery of the ninth over when Khawaja played a late cut off Scorchers all-rounder Ashton Agar. Having hit the ball, the southpaw though of sneaking a single but it wasn’t to be as Inglis stopped the ball with his left leg.

In addition to just preventing the single, Inglis also stopped the ball with his foot and then picked it up and to find Khawaja wanting at the striker’s end. By the time the batsman could realize about what had happened and return back to the crease, it had become all too late for him.

The rain-curtailed match had asked for the home team to chase 96 runs in 12 overs which was made possible on the back of opening batsman Alex Hales scoring 47 (27) with the help of four fours and two sixes.

Earlier, Scorchers captain Mitchell Marsh had won the toss and chose to bat. Having lost four wickets for 99 runs in 15 overs, the visitors were devoid of a chance to go all out in the slog overs as rain put a halt to their innings. Thunder bowlers in Chris Morris, Chris Tremain, Daniel Sams and Jonathan Cook had all picked a wicket each in the first innings.
