Wes Agar Escapes A Nasty Injury While Bowling In Marsh Cup 2019
Recently, we came across a fast bowler Mickey Edwards escaping the injury when a batsman struck the ball straight into him in his run-up. Now yet another such incident took place when Wes Agar landed awkwardly at the bowling crease.
The South Australia fast bowler Wes Agar didn’t land his foot in the right way, which saw him sliding on the wrong foot. For a moment, it looked like Wes Agar is in deep trouble. However, thankfully, he was up on his feet and continued to bowl for his team.
Wes Agar recovered quickly:
The incident happened in the very first over of the Queensland innings when Agar was handed the ball to open the bowling attack for South Australia. He bowled six overs in the game and finished with figures of 0/39.
Oh man this could have been nasty

Getting into the details of the match, initially, it was South Australia, who were put in to bat first after Queensland winning the toss. Right in the fourth over, Steketee sent Callum Ferguson back to the hut while Lehmann and Weatherald followed him in quick succession. However, the 62- run knock from Tom Cooper helped South Australia to post a decent tally of 226 runs on the board.Credits – Twitter
