BBL 11 | Watch : An umpiring howler costs Ben Duckett his wicket

Brisbane Heat's star batsman Ben Duckett was not very happy as he was wrongly adjudged LBW by the on-field umpire in the clash against Melbourne Renegades. Duckett got out after scoring 11 runs in 10 deliveries.


Trying to play the sweep shot off a Zahir Khan's delivery, Duckett got deceived as the ball crashed onto his front pad. The leg-spinner appealed and the umpire was confident enough to give the decision in the bowler's favour.


However, as the replays showed, it seemed the ball would have certainly missed the leg-stump. With DRS (Decision Review System) not available in the Big Bash League, Duckett had no option other than to walk back to the dressing room. Although, he expressed his disappointment at the decision but nothing could have been done due to the lack of technology.

Talking about the match, Brisbane Heat gathered an easy win in their encounter against Melbourne Renegades. After winning the toss, Brisbane opted to bowl. As none except Mackenzie Harvey managed to score big, the Renegades could only reach a total of 140 runs.

With the vital contributions from Chris Lynn and Sam Heazlett, Brisbane Heat breezed past the target set for them in just 16.5 overs.
