Pakistan’s Haris Rauf has been a household name in Australia’s Big Bash League in the recent years with the pacer playing for Melbourne Stars.

His recent antics on the pitch however, was completely unexpected from the fans as the bowler was seen walking into the crease without his batting pads on.

With only one ball left in the innings and Rauf supposed to come at the non-strikers end, he decided to come without an important part of his kit.

The number 11 batter didn’t even have his helmet and gloves on initially as the umpires urged the player to come on the field in order to not get timed out by the opposition.

With the umpires then ordering him to call for his kit, Rauf still didn’t wear the pads, only wearing the helmet and gloves.

With Angelo Matthews’ time out dismissal in the ODI World Cup 2023 still fresh in the minds of fans and players, the Pakistan international didn’t take any risk and walked on to bat without any protection whatsoever.

The incident came to the amusement of fans who stood their confused as to why Haris would think of pulling the task with the umpires on the field.

Rauf’s side however, lost the match against Sydney Thunders by 5 wickets with 10 ball left to be played. It wasn’t a good outing for Rauf both batting and bowling wise as the pacer left the field without any scalp to his name and didn’t get to face even a single delivery while coming out to bat.
