Something similar was seen in a match of the Big Bash League being played in Australia. This match was played between Sydney Thunder and Brisbane Heat. Thunder won this match by 10 wickets with 50 balls remaining. But, something happened during this match that a shot by Sydney batsman Matthew Gilks ​​overshadowed the fan. Through this one shot, Gilks’ 50 runs were completed. However, a fan sitting in the stands narrowly avoided losing his eye while trying to catch Gilks’ aerial fire. Its video is going viral on social media.

This incident happened in the 11th over of Sydney Thunder’s innings. Leg-spinner Mitchell Swepson was throwing this over. Gilks ​​took two runs on the first ball of this over from Swepson. But, after that he changed his gear and hit a six over the long-on boundary on the very next ball. Gilkes hit a boundary on the third ball. Once on the fourth ball, Gilks ​​fired in the air, the ball went for a six across the wide long on boundary. A fan sitting in the stands tried to take the catch.
