Big Bash League T20 2012-13 Live Streaming, KFC BBL Live Stream
Round 2 of the Big Bash league produced a mix of outstanding individual performances, edge of your seat finishes and some downright ugly cricket/situations.
Lasith Malinga produced one of the most dominant individual efforts T20 cricket has ever seen. His final figures of 4 overs, 1 maiden, 6 wickets for 7 runs were the second best ever recorded in domestic T20s and the best taken in the Big Bash. Four of those wickets came from his apparent unreadable slower ball that made batsmen look foolish more often than not. But the batsmen going out to Malinga weren’t the only ones to look silly on the night after the match referee incorrectly sent the players back onto the ground to face one delivery after a rain delay. The Duckworth/Lewis method deemed that the par score after 5 overs was 20 and Melbourne was already on 29, meaning the extra ball wasn’t required. The incorrectly bowled extra ball was expunged as it affected the net run rate, while the original result of 10 wickets was changed to 24 runs to replicate the 2 over par score target of 6. It was an extremely messy situation that even affected some betting markets.
Thankfully, the Strikers vs Heat game got the Big Bash back in the good books of the cricket world with occurances that had to be seen to be believed. It had it all, high scoring, brilliant death bowling, spectacular catches and a dramatic last ball finish. Chris Hartley hit the last ball for four after it appeared Callum Ferguson had successfully dived and fielded the stroke, but the cameras revealed the truth, just adding to the match situation theatrics. What else could you ask for?
