- The right-arm fast bowler bowled two over-the-waist no-balls.
- Thunder took the advantage and scored a mammoth total of 200/7 in 20 overs.
The ongoing season of the Big Bash League has been producing some extremely exciting cricket on the field in the last few days. With fans inside the stadiums and some big names in action, it is proving to be another successful edition of one of the oldest T20 leagues across the globe. But amid some quality cricket, a bizarre incident took place on Tuesday.
In the 24th match of the season, the undefeated Perth Scorchers won the toss and opted to bowl against Sydney Thunder at Manuka Oval. However, things did not really turn out the way for table-toppers as they would have hoped for.
Tye removed from attack after bowling only 1.3 overs
After a decent powerplay, in-form pacer Andrew Tye came to bowl and the Thunder batsmen surprisingly went after him. Having conceded 11 runs in the over, he was removed from the attack only to be called back by captain Ashton Turner in the 15th over. Then followed a dramatic sequence of events!
Sam Billings welcomed the pacer with two back-to-back boundaries before Tye sent him back to the pavilion on the third delivery of the over. The right-arm fast bowler then bowled an over-the-waist no-ball followed by a wide. He was getting under some pressure and the experienced bowler actually lost his rhythm.
Tye bowled another high full-toss which was deemed as no-ball as Alex Ross smashed it for a boundary. However, the on-field umpires felt that both the no-balls were dangerous deliveries and as per rules, Tye was removed from the bowling attack by the officials as Lance Morris completed his over.

The right-arm pacer was done for the evening after bowling only 1.3 overs, conceding 26 runs and taking 1 wicket. With Tye not available for the death overs, Thunder took the advantage and scored a few crucial runs late in innings to post a mammoth total of 200/7 in 20 overs.
