Incident took place when Keshav Maharaj bowled to Durham batsman and it hit on the pad and the ball was rolling back to pitch. Durham batsmen were stealing a run and Yorkshire’s keeper had found a good opportunity of a run-out. He immediately ran towards the ball, picked it and threw it without noticing where the stumps are.
But he unintentionally hit the bowler Keshav Maharaj at the hip. Bowler seemed in pain after the incident. Official Twitter handle of Vitality Blast posted the video with a caption ‘The Poor Bowler”.
