Watch – Leg-Spinner Qais Ahmad Stuns Andre Russell With A Bouncer

The 2019 edition of the Abu Dhabi T10 League is in full swing. We have witnessed some brutal hitting in the shortest format of the game with Australia’s Chris Lynn hogging the most of the limelight for his venomous striking. Recently, a leg-spinner Qais Ahmed caught West Indies all-rounder Andre Russell off-guarded with a strange variation – bouncer.

To be at par with the batsmen in the shortest formats, the bowlers are coming up with strange techniques and this one is the mother of all. Qais Ahmad, who finished with impressive figures of one for 13 from his two overs for Bangla Tigers, handed the helmetless Andre Russell a brutal, out of the blue bouncer that caused the devastating West Indian all-rounder to fall to the ground in his attempt to evade the ball.

Qais Ahmed catches Russell off-guarded

Russell didn’t anticipate it as coming and was caught off-guarded and looked extremely surprised. The wicket-keeper did an outstanding job to glove the ball standing right up in the wicket. A shocked Andre Russell asked for the helmet after Qais Ahmad tendered an apology and all was done in good humour.
