At the fourth ball of the sixteenth over – the overall over of the innings in a rain-shortened fixture – the place the Thunder fast Nathan McAndrew bowled a pointy yorker to Christian after having erred with a no-ball at the earlier supply.
Christian hit the ball immediately into the arms of Chopping, who used to be fielding at the offside within the 30-yard circle. Chopping threw the ball in air, presuming a stuck dismissal. He utterly forgot that it used to be a free-hit supply.
Within the interim, Christian and Jordan Silk finished a double and had been noticed bursting into laughter at the scenes that spread out, whilst Chopping regarded dejected with himself. Seeing the 2 batters chortle, even the commentators joined within the amusing.
