Tye bowls a deliberate wide to deny Vince a century in BBL

Cricket is a game of emotions. Whenever a player scores a fifty, century or takes a wicket, he couldn’t be happier the next second because it is an incredible feeling when you do something for the team.

Talking about scoring a century, only very few batsmen in the modern era have been consistently achieving the landmark. Whenever a player scores a century, his teammates in the dugout and in the dressing room stand up and applaud him for the special knock.

However, during the BBL 10 qualifier match between Perth Scorchers and Sydney Sixers, James Vince was expected to score a century to guide his team into the final. His teammates expected him to finish off the run-chase with a century.

The right-handed batsman who was batting on 98 needed just 2 runs to get to his landmark. However, the equation for the Sixers was they needed just 1 run to win the game. However, Andrew Tye ruined the party as he bowled a deliberate wide delivery, which denied James a century.

This incident reminds us of Sri Lanka’s Suraj Randiv who bowled a no-ball to Virender Sehwag and denied him a century when India needed just 1 run to win. Sehwag shimmied down the track to smash a six to bring up his century. However, with Randiv bowling a big no-ball, Sehwag had to settle for 99.

James Vince looks visibly upset after Tye bowled a no-ball. The fans in the stadium booed the fast bowler for his idiotic act. The video of the same went viral on social media.

Earlier, Perth Scorchers posted 167/6 in their quota of 20 overs. Josh Inglis scored an unbeaten 69 off 41 balls including 5 fours and 2 sixes. Sixers chased down the target in 17 overs. Vince finished the match with an unbeaten 98 off 53 balls including 14 fours and a six. Vince was named the man of the match for his spectacular batting performance.

“We weren’t sure about the conditions, a few balls were moving around when we bowled, Phillipe took the pressure off me with a few early boundaries. Two more would have been nice, but great to contribute and be there till the end,” Vince said at the post-match presentation.

When asked about Andrew Tye’s wide whether it was deliberate, he said: ‘Only he will know’, but we should have been home in the previous over, but just happy to be finishing unbeaten. It will be amazing to be at the SCG, it’s an amazing prospect after being on the road for so long.

Great turnabout, nice to see so many travelling to support us, looking forward to Saturday (February 6th) for the final,” he added.
