Steve Smith dismisses Josh Inglis: New South Wales’ part-time bowler was success in dismissing the opposition’s wicket-keeper batsman.
During the fourth day of the 10th match of the ongoing Marsh Sheffield Shield between New South Wales and Western Australia in Sydney, New South Wales part-time bowler Steve Smith dismissed Western Australia wicket-keeper batsman Josh Inglis in an atypical manner.
It all happened on the last delivery of the 56th over when Inglis played a cover drive off Smith. With the ball hitting the silly-point fielder’s leg on the full, it lobbed off in the air to be eventually caught by the short-leg fielder.
Having timed the drive well, Inglis was left shell-shocked in the manner in which he got out. Coming in to bat at No. 8 in the 26th over, Inglis played well for his 46 (104) with the help of five fours and a six.
Smith, who scored his 42nd First-class century in the first innings, ended up registering bowling figures of 6-2-10-1.
Chasing a 352-run target, Western Australia were bundled out for 128 in 64.3 overs as the hosts won the match by 223 runs. While Inglis was the top-scorer for Western Australia, fast bowler Mitchell Starc (17-2-57-4) was the pick of the bowlers for New South Wales.
Having won all the four matches till now in this season, New South Wales are currently the table-toppers. On the other hand, Western Australia are at No. 2 with a win and loss each in the tournament.
