In the second match of the BBL Playoffs between Sydney Sixers and the Perth Scorchers at Manuka Oval, Sixers won the match by 9 wickets with 18 balls and qualified for the finals of the BBL 2020 – 2021, but the Sixers won the match in the worst possible way has James Vince missed his well deserved century by just two runs.
James Vince played a wonderful knock against the Scorchers and scored 98 runs off 53 balls which included one six and 14 fours with a strike rate of 184.91, his innings helped the Sixers to chase their target of 168 with three overs left.
James Vince was on 98 when sixers needed 1 run to win the match and crowd started cheering James Vince expecting him to smash a boundary so that he can reach the century and the ball was handed over to Andrew Tye for his final over, but the unexpected happened when Tye bowled a wide ball and ended the game. Although Tye immediately apologized Vince, the English Batsman hasn’t seemed okay with his apology.

I didn’t realise it was a bowler’s responsibility at professional level to gift a batter a century? Especially when the batter and his batting partner tried to manipulate who was on strike to do just that, they just couldn’t quite manipulate it well enough.

that was such a low play by Tye giving Vince a wide. That’s so disgusting. Shame on you Andrew Tye. I’m so glad the 6rs squashed the Scorchers.
