A bizarre wardrobe malfunction during a match in the ongoing Big Bash League (BBL) in Australia between Sydney Thunder and Brisbane Heat in Canberra has left netizens in splits.
In a video that is making rounds of the Internet, Australian and Sydney Thunder batsman Usman Khawaja was seen stripping down to his trunks after his lower abdomen guard snapped and he called for new ones.
While one expected the batsman to run to the dressing room to change, Khawaja shocked everyone when he decided to disrobe on the field.
The incident happened at the eight over of the first innings when he removed his shoes, pads and pants to change his lower abdomen guard.
Take a look here:
Have … have you ever seen this before 😂
