In the ongoing Big bash league, every day there is a new source of funny incidents. Recently in the game between Sydney Sixers and Sydney Thunder, Ben Cutting takes a catch and throws the ball up not knowing that it was a free-hit.
This incident happened in the 20th match between the Sydney Sixers and Sydney thunder. The 4th ball of the 16th over bowled by Nathan McAndrew was a no-ball, so the next ball was a free-hit.
Daniel Christan tried to hit the ball over the extra cover but eventually got caught to Ben Cutting.
And Ben Cutting in excitement threw the ball up not knowing that it was a free-hit delivery. As he threw the ball up, the Sixers batters were able to heist one run, making it a couple of runs on that ball.

McAndrew to Christian, 2 runs, yorker length outside off, drilled low to Cutting at extra-cover, he catches it and throws the ball up – not knowing it was a free-hit because he threw it away, they take one more. Christian with a big smile on his face claps with his bat at Cutting and Silk responds with a smile too. They all see the funny side of things.
