ILT20: Sheldon Cottrell bowled a wayward delivery to Tom Kohler-Cadmore© Twitter
However, a bizarre moment became the highlight of the match after Vipers pacer Sheldon Cottrell threw a wayward delivery to Tom Kohler-Cadmore, who made an extra effort and smashed it to send the ball across the boundary line. The incident fetched a surprising reaction from former India batter Virender Sehwag, who was doing the Hindi commentary in the match.
“Aaj kal tohfe aise mil rahe hein jinka koi hisab nahi. I wish ki hamare time mein bhi tohfe aise milte. (Gifts offered these days are countless. I wish in our times we could have had these gifts),” said Sehwag during the match.

Unfortunately, Kohler’s effort went into vain as the umpire declared the delivery as a dead ball. According to MCC law 21.8, “If the ball delivered is so far from the pitch that the striker would need to leave the pitch to attempt to play the ball, without having previously touched the bat or person of the striker, the umpire shall call and signal No ball and immediately call and signal Dead ball.”
