During the 19th over of Scorchers’ chase, Christian got ready to deliver a ball to Andrew Tye but came back after he noticed that Eskinazi, who was standing at the non-striker’s end, was out of the crease before the ball was bowled.
Christian did not run out Eskinazi but said, “It was a warning mate.”

However, this was not the first instance of a bowler dismissing or warning a player at the non-striker’s end. Earlier, Melbourne Stars skipper Adam Zampa attempted to run out Melbourne Renegades’ Tom Rogers at the non-striker’s end as he went out of the crease.
The decision was reviewed and the third umpire did not consider it a run out as Zampa’s arm had “gone past the vertical”, which according to ICC rule is not considered legal for such a dismissal.
Sydney Sixers will now be going up against Adelaide Strikers in their next match on Tuesday while Perth Scorchers will be facing Hobart Hurricanes on Wednesday.
