South Africa Batter Leaves Ball; Costly Mistake in Decision-Making
Khaya Zondo was dismissed during South Africa’s scrimmage against the England Lions for attempting to leave a delivery outside the off-stump.
So South Africa is currently engaged in a warm-up game against the England Lions in preparation for their three-game Test series against England, which gets underway on August 17. After winning the toss in the four-day game, SouthAfrica opted to bat. So with a crucial 86-run hit at No 7, South Africa’s Khaya Zondo made a lasting impression. But he lost his job because of a catastrophic error in judgment. On the second day of the competition, Pacer Sam Cook threw the ball early and just outside off. Zondo made an effort to release the ball, but it kept coming in at an angle and hitting the off-stump.
