Melbourne Renegades squared off with Hobart Hurricanes for the 26th matchup of the ongoing season of the Big Bash League at Melbourne's Dockland Stadium. The former batted first but were restricted to a below-par total of 147 runs despite having six wickets in hand.

With the Renegades back against the wall, Hurricanes openers Caleb Jewell and Ben McDermott launched an aggressive attack to make the most of the powerplay. However, it was McDermott who stole the show with a wild hit.

In the second over of the chase, Ben danced down the track to top edge Tom Rogers's length delivery. While McDermott meant to launch the six over deep mid-wicket, the ball never landed on the ground.

McDermott's Long Hit Gets Stuck In Stadium's Roof!

Ben McDermott's monstrous hit mysteriously got stuck into Dockland Stadium's roof. While the umpire signalled it a maximum, the ball got lost as players on the field tried to locate its exact location. The bizarre incident left the spectator and even Ben in splits.

Docklands Stadium has a retractable roof designed to provide an all-weather playing environment. As the ball soared into the Melbourne sky, it collided with the roof's intricate structure, creating a spectacle that left fans momentarily puzzled.

While McDermott's six might not have landed in the stands as anticipated, the remarkable display of power hitting and the unique challenge posed by Docklands Stadium's roof added a memorable chapter to the cricketing spectacle.

Nonetheless, the play carried on after a new ball was introduced. Hurricanes Sam Hain and Corey Anderson put up a 50+ runs partnership to guide Hobart to a comprehensive win.

With that win, Hobart Hurricanes added much-needed points to the points table. However, on the flip side, Melbourne Renegades continue to struggle to find footing this Big Bash season.

They currently sit second last on the points table with a mere three points on board.
