Viral video shows how fielder’s attempt to save boundary during a European Cricket League (ECL) match goes in vain.

Cricket always brings its share of surprises, and here’s another gem to add some spice to your weekend! A sidesplitting video has been making the rounds on social media, capturing a fielding blunder during a cricket showdown that ended up gifting the opposing team a boundary instead of saving runs! Yes, you heard it right. This uproarious incident unfolded during a showdown between Independents CC and Donaustadt, a highlight match in Group F Qualifier 2 of the European Cricket 2024 held at Spain’s Cartama Oval.

While Donaustadt set a formidable target of 147/4 in 10 overs, the real entertainment kicked off during Independents’ chase in the very first over. A wide delivery snuck past the wicketkeeper’s legs, but a determined fielder put in a commendable effort to halt it just shy of the boundary line. Displaying impressive agility, he even leaped across the advertisement boards, keeping the ball within play.

Yet, despite his heroic attempts, fortune had other plans. As he rose to retrieve the ball, a fateful collision with the wicketkeeper caused the ball to slip from his hands, allowing it to roll across the boundary line. Oh, the irony of it all after such a display of effort!
