Big Bash League 2019-20: Peter Siddle did the runout in Dhoni’s style-video went viral: In the match between Sydney Thunder and Adelaide Strikers in the Big Bash League (BBL) on 31 December, Australian fast bowler Peter Siddle made a runout in the style of Mahendra Singh Dhoni without stumps, the video has gone viral. This video is shared by cricket.com.au on his official Instagram. Siddle has recently retired from international cricket and is currently playing for the Adelaide Strikers in the Big Bash League.
Sydney Thunder batted first and Usman Khwaja and Alex Hales opened the innings. Together, they shared a 31-run partnership. Alex Hales was out for four. Khwaja then teamed up with Callum Ferguson to take the score to 104 runs. Khawaja contributed 63 off 50 balls and returned to the pavilion after a runout. On the fourth ball of the 14th over as he was taking a run, Wes Agar caught the ball and threw it to the non-striker end, near the saddle stumps and scattering the gills without seeing the stumps.
Thus ended Khwaja’s innings. Siddle did some runouts in Dhoni’s style. In Ranchi against New Zealand, Dhoni dismissed Ross Taylor in some similar fashion. Sydney Thunder scored 168 for five wickets in 20 overs. Captain Callum Ferguson smashed 73 runs.
