The second T20I between Australia and West Indies at Adelaide Oval not only witnessed a breathtaking display of power-hitting from Glenn Maxwell but also saw a bizarre incident unfold that left fans scratching their heads. While the spectators were still in awe of Maxwell’s record-breaking century in the first innings, it was the controversial run-out denial of Alzarri Joseph that stole the spotlight in the second innings.

The unusual and surprising incident

It all happened in the 19th over of the second innings when West Indies were already struggling at 190-9 while chasing 242, and Joseph ran towards the non-striker’s end for a quick single. The Caribbean cricketer almost fell victim to a run-out in pursuit of stealing a run as Tim David executed a precise throw to bowler Spencer Johnson, who swiftly whipped off the bails. Despite clear visuals showing Joseph falling short of his crease, the umpire controversially declared him not out.

Reason why Alzarri Joseph was given not out

The peculiar decision stemmed from the fact that there was no formal appeal from Australian players before the big screen had already displayed the conclusive visuals of the run-out. The umpire, observing the celebration and the lack of appeal, ruled Joseph not out, prompting an animated reaction from the Aussie players. Nevertheless, Joseph was still allowed to continue his innings.
