In a European Cricket League match Finland fast bowler Amjad Sher had eight slip fielders in place for the first ball of the innings against England XI. A fielder at leg-slip was also placed as all 13 players, including 2 batsmen, were visible in one frame and no one could be seen in the outfield.
The most intriguing thing you will see today
People are shocked XD
More baffled to realising Finland had a cricket team— JoshuaaaB (@Josh_Barringham) September 30, 2021
Why would they do that? Psychological? It worked clearly, though I'm more impressed that Finland have a cricket team— Chris Bickley (@ChrisBickley1) September 30, 2021

People are seeing the funny side
I'd jokingly do field set-ups like this on Ricky Ponting International Cricket 2005, but never did I think I'd see it in real life.— jennifer (@jennife74834570) October 1, 2021
To the Finland cricket team, I take my hat off to you.
This team did such a game in fielding, even the big captains will fail, whoever saw it, was surprised. Finland Cricket Team deploys 8 Fielders in slips, leaves everyone surprised— jennifer (@jennife74834570) October 1, 2021
