Controversy Strikes BBL with Ashes-style Catch Drama

Sydney Sixers captain Moises Henriques took a stunning catch to remove Melbourne Stars opener Marcus Stoinis but injured his shoulder in the process. The catch led to controversy, as third umpire Claire Polosak upheld the dismissal despite the ball appearing to scrape along the ground. This decision caused uproar on social media, with many former players and commentators criticizing Polosak for incorrectly adjudicating the catch. However, there were also calls to change the rules and make catches like Henriques’ legal. Despite the controversy, the Stars were able to secure their first win of the Big Bash League season.
