Twitter reacts to Mosaddek Hossain conceding a boundary due to comical early slide

While the process of sliding to field and throw the ball in one swift motion has helped teams save runs, it does not always come off as smoothly. Mosaddek Hossain was left red-faced against Zimbabwe today as he slid too early and saw the ball roll to the ropes in front of his eyes.

Having won the toss and opted to bat, Bangladesh scored 150 off their allotted overs. Much of that was attributed to Zimbabwe’s poor display in the field where they dropped multiple catches and were guilty of misfielding the ball too many times. Zimbabwe needed a good start to chase a target that seemed quite attainable. However, it was Bangladesh that grabbed the game by the scruff of the neck. Not only did they restrict Zimbabwe to just 36 runs off the powerplay, but they also ensured that four of their batsmen were back in the hut as well.

While Bangladesh’s fielding was on point for most of the game, there was a moment that left everyone in splits and Mosaddek Hossain embarrassed. On the fifth ball of the 10th over, Sean Williams was facing Hasan Mahmud. The bowler decided to go short outside off stump as he had decent cover on that side. Williams, however, decided to go against the grain and pulled the ball towards cow corner. Mosaddek, who was fielding at deep square leg, ran all the way across deep midwicket to get to the ball.

Once he did get there, he made a huge mess of the situation. The Bangladesh star decided to slide to collect the ball - something that is very common in cricket these days. However, he slid way too early and came to a stop as the ball kept rolling in front of him. As the ball, almost mockingly, moved towards the ropes, all he could do was look at it as Zimbabwe added four runs to their total. 

Twitter realized that is was not a moment to ignore and jumped to their favorite social media platform to troll Bangladesh for their fielding “heroics”.

Nagins for a reason!
