Watch: Australia’s Alana King smashes a six and gets hit-wicket on the same delivery


Bizarre scenes occurred in the third and series-deciding ODI between South African women and Australian women, as Alana King smashed a six and got out on the same delivery.

The incident occurred on the last ball of the 48th over when Masabata Klaas bowled a no-ball, which King smashed for a six. However, she also lost her balance and hit the wicket with her bat. Since the ball was above the waist, she survived and collected seven runs off a single delivery.

Cricket Australia took to Twitter to post a video of the same and wrote, “Alana King manages to hit a six – and her wicket – off the same ball! It’s all happening!”

Here are some of the fans’ reactions.

In the ongoing series, South African women scripted history as they registered their first win over Australia in their cricketing history. Meanwhile, in the ongoing match, Australia, batting first, posted 277 runs on the board.

Beth Mooney remained unbeaten and scored 82 (91), which featured ten fours. Captain and keeper Alyssa Healy also scored a fifty and amassed 60 (73), which featured nine fours and one six.

For the Proteas, Masabata Klaas was the top wicket-taker with four scalps to her name.
