The incident happened during the match between Warriors and Team Abu Dhabi. Warriors’ batsman W Mohammad smashed a delivery towards the boundary. R Mustafa was patrolling the region but he wasn’t completely prepared for the chase as he was changing his jersey.

However, as the ball came near him, he tried to stop the ball and was still wearing the jersey. Unfortunately neither he could stop the ball and nor could be wear his jersey completely.

It was a night to forget for R Mustafa as apart from this embarrassing incident, he also had another disappointment in the match. Warriors needed 2 runs from the last ball to win the game. Overton nailed his low full-toss and R Powell could only push it to the deep-mid wicket. Mustafa failed to collect and throw the ball and instead fumbled. This allowed Warriors to sneak in the second run and complete the win.
