Marcus Stoinis gets out hit-wicket as he fails to tackle bouncer from Olly Stone


All-rounder Marcus Stoinis was on the receiving end of a bizarre dismissal in the ongoing SA20 2024 game between Durban Super Giants and Mumbai Indians Cape Town. The match between the two teams is taking place at Newlands Park in Cape Town.

Marcus Stoinis came to bat when the Durban Super Giants lost Heinrich Klaasen. The all-rounder tried to get going but he couldn’t as bagged an unusual dismissal and got out after having a short start against Mumbai Indians Cape Town.

During the 5th ball of the 15th over, Olly Stone bowled a pacy short delivery. Marcus Stoinis tried to play the pull but got hurried on his pull shot. The ball lobbed up after hitting the handle of the all-rounder’s bat and went behind square, where Mumbai Indians Cape Town bowler Kagiso Rabada took a catch.

Marcus Stoinis couldn’t control the downswing of the bat and in the process ended up hitting the stumps. He couldn’t believe what happened and was dejected with the way he got out. Here’s the video of his dismissal.

Even if the bat didn’t hit stumps, he would’ve been out because Kagiso Rabada took the catch at the backward square leg.
