Watch : Henry Nicholls freak dismissal draws comparison to the Australian Legend

Henry Nicholls

In the ongoing test match between England and New Zealand, Kiwi middle order batsman Henry Nicholls got out in bizarre fashion on the opening day in the Headingley test. England’s left arm spinner Jack Leach was very happy to celebrate the wicket of Henry Nicholls. 


Henry Nicholls, on the stroke of tea, drives the ball straight to Jack Leach. But unfortunately the ball hit his teammate Daryl Mitchell’s bat and went into the hands of Alex Lees who was fielding at mid-off. It was a very strange dismissal, but nevertheless England will celebrate every wicket, that too a wicket of a solid middle order batsman like Henry Nicholls.

Jack Leach said that’ “ It was unbelievable, I’ve never seen anything like it”. He also said Hendry Nicholls was very unlucky and he was very lucky to get his wicket in that fashion.


But cricket fans were quick to compare this dismissal with the late Andrew Symonds dismissal against Srilanka. In that match Andrew Symonds played a same straight drive powerfully and it hit the right leg of former Australian Captain Micheal Clark who was standing at the non-striker’s end. Both the dismissal looks similar to each other then it was the late Andrew Symonds now Henry Nicholls both were very unlucky and its very hard to believe that Andrew Symonds is no more with us.

But after getting out Andrew Symonds had a smiling face when he walked off, he smiled at Micheal Clark who caused his wicket un intentionally. In this time Henry Nicholls did not have a smile on his face after the dismissal he looked very dejected. Daryl Mitchell was also not one to blame as he had no idea what’s going to happen. Daryl Mitchell ends the day as New Zealand top scorer scoring unbeaten 78 off 159. He will look to score a big hundred on Day 2. Meanwhile England will look to dismiss him as early to get back into the game.
