T20 Blast: Surrey Needed 9 Runs To Win From Final Over By Peter Siddle. Then This Happened. Watch

It was a thriller of a match that could have gone either way. In a T20 Blast match on Tuesday, the Tom Abel-led Somerset team scored 144/8 in 20 by hitting first against Surrey. The Chris Jordan-led team chased the goal with 145 runs, driving towards the goal until they needed nine of the final. Experienced Australian fast bowler Peter Siddle got the all-important over with Surrey at 136/4 and then some bizarre incidents happened.

On the first delivery from the over, Siddle was awarded one run, and on the next delivery, Jordan sent Jordan away. On the third ball, Nico Reifer hit a four, but was sent off on the next ball. Siddle then sent Gus Atkinson off his fifth delivery. By now, Surrey needed four runs on the last pitch, but Siddle was in great form. However, Conor McKerr hit a border of the last ball to help his team win by three wickets.

Meanwhile, former West Indian all-rounder Kieron Pollard has been ruled out of the rest of the T20 blast after sustaining an injury to his left knee early in the Surrey campaign. Kieron Pollard has been ruled out of the T20 Blast but is expected to be fit in time to play in the Hundred. Despite the treatment, he failed to improve significantly, so it was decided to seek surgical advice. Surrey County Cricket Club signed the former all-rounder for their T20 Blast campaign this season last month.

Kieron Pollard said: “This is extremely frustrating as we have been a dominant force and I felt I was part of something special. But I wish the boys all the best for the rest of the campaign as I get myself fit and firing again. “


Alec Stewart, Cricket Director at Surrey CCC, said in an official statement: “We are disappointed to lose a player of Kieron’s quality and wish him a speedy recovery.”

“Despite the treatment, he has not been able to improve significantly and it was therefore decided to seek surgical advice. He has undergone a successful operation this [Tuesday] morning, which means he will be out of action for the next four to six weeks while he recovers,” the statement added.
