X-Factor? Not really, says Jimmy Neesham
One of the three new playing conditions being introduced in the 2020-21 Big Bash League is the chance to substitute a player at the tenth-over mark of the first innings. Jimmy Neesham is a sceptic. What about you?
How much "X-factor" could a player possibly have if he's not good enough to make your starting 11? https://t.co/yNabaCuu6e— Jimmy Neesham (@JimmyNeesh) November 16, 2020
The mid-innings conversation
Maybe that's why you need the strategic timeouts during a match - so players can go for a loo break. At the fall of the fourth wicket of the Lahore Qalandars chase in their PSL playoff match against Peshawar Zalmi, not-out batsman Mohammad Hafeez dashed off the ground to relieve himself. The break served not only his bladder well but also the Qalandars - Hafeez's unbeaten 74 took them into the second Eliminator (and eventually the PSL final). In the video, commentator Ramiz Raja chats with the Zalmi's Shoaib Malik, Imam-ul-Haq (wicketkeeper) and Wahab Riaz about Hafeez and the match.
