Moises Henriques Stands Firm: Insists Controversial Catch Was Clean in BBL 2023-24

1 min read

Moises Henriques claimed his catch to dismiss Tom Rogers in the Big Bash League was clean, raising concerns about cricket’s rules. Melbourne Stars notched their first win of the season in an eight-wicket victory against the Sydney Sixers, injecting new life into their campaign. However, the standout moment from the match was Henriques’ remarkable catch to remove Rogers in the Stars’ pursuit of victory. Despite landing on the ground with the ball in his right hand, Henriques insisted he had complete control of the catch. The decision to send the catch to the third umpire resulted in an unconvincing attempt to overturn it. Henriques compared his catch to Mitchell Starc’s controversial catch in the Ashes, acknowledging the blurred lines within the game regarding what constitutes a clean catch. Henriques also injured his left shoulder while taking the catch, and his availability for the next match is uncertain.
