The incident took place in the 10th over of SNP’s inning when Asif Ali and Sherfane Rutherford were batting. Rutherford tucked Alzarri Joseph’s second delivery of the over to midwicket and ran off for double, however, his partner Asif Ali just didn’t move from his crease. Rutherford kept running for the second while Asif Ali just watched him run the second. In the end, it was an easy run out for their opponent. The run-out left Sherfane Rutherford furious and he was seen throwing his helmet away in anger.
