Only David Warner scored 94 runs off 96 balls while Glenn Maxwell scored 19 runs. Apart from these two, no Aussie batters could even reach double-digit score.

Burl’s impressive bowling saw Australia bowled out on just 131 runs in 31 overs after the visitors asked them to bat first. Zimbabwe responded by losing quick wickets too but eventually chased the target in the 39th over with the crucial contribution from wicketkeeper-batter Regis Chakabva and opener Tadiwanashe Marumani. Chakabva scored an unbeaten 37 runs off 72 balls while Marumani scored 35 runs off 47 balls.

The incident happened when Burl dismissed Maxwell on 19 off 22 balls. The commentators was heard calling his dismissal as lucky on on air. “It was a lucky one, he knows how lucky it was.” The video of the same was shared by Fox Cricket on Twitter.

Raza, surprised by the commentators’ take, retweeted the video and questioned: “How’s this a lucky one? Please someone help me out here”
