West Indies fast bowler Kemar Roach experienced one of the most unfortunate dismissals in recent times, leading him to be run-out on day 2 of the 2nd Test against Australia in Brisbane. The 35-year-old fell on his backside on the middle of the pitch while trying to take a single.
The dismissal occurred in the 105th over of the innings as Pat Cummins delivered a full ball and Roach took off for a single after tapping one to his right. Even as his partner Kevin Sinclair wasn't interested in the single, Roach ran halfway down the track and slipped to fall on his backside. Marnus Labuschagne passed the ball to Travis Head, who broke the stumps at the striker's end, giving Australia the much-needed wicket, ending a pesky 31-run partnership.
Kemar Roach breathes fire with the ball after West Indies make a competitive 311:
Meanwhile, the visitors recovered from a precarious 64-5 to make a competitive 311 following half-centuries from Sinclair, Joshua da Silva, and Kavem Hodge. They frustrated the hosts on day 2, getting to 311 from 266-8 as Sinclair got to his half-century with a maximum off Nathan Lyon before the off-spinner got the better of him.
Roach took the new ball and got Steve Smith in the first over, while Alzarri Joseph removed Marnus Labuschagne. The 35-year-old Barbadian returned to dismiss Cameron Green and Travis Head, with the latter going for a golden duck, before heading for dinner.
