In their Big Bash match, Sydney Thunder wicketkeeper Jay Lenton got 3 genuine chances of stumping off 3 consecutive deliveries. Funnily, during the eventful third chance, Lenton appealed for both caught behind and stumping and in the same ball, Perth Scorchers batsman Adam Voges was injured as well.

While getting a single chance of stumping in a match is considered as fortune for a wicket-keeper, BBL debutant Jay Lenton got three genuine opportunities in three balls against Perth Scorchers, yesterday. Lenton got his first dismissal in his BBL career when Ian Bell moved down the track, only to miss a straight one from off-spinner Chris Green. The next batsman Adam Voges also missed Green's next delivery and Lenton again removed the bails. But the third umpire ruled it not-out because it was clear in the replay that Voges’ foot was inside the crease, at the time of stumping

The third ball was rather more eventful, in which Voges’ foot slipped out of his ground while attempting a sweep. Lenton thought that the ball had hit the bat and started appealing for caught behind. In the meantime, Voges had enough time in his hands to crawl back into the batting crease. Lenton missed another opportunity to take a wicket, but the drama didn’t end there. Voges who managed to skip the danger of stumping, however, had injured his right hamstring in the process and retired hurt after the conclusion of the over.

This is the second injury for Voges in last two months, after he had missed some Sheffield Shield matches in last November, due to a concussion suffered during a Sheffield Shield match.
