A similar incident happened 13 overs later when all-rounder Beau Webster hit the roof of Tom Rodgers. Here the ball fell close to the pitch, but again six runs were given. The decision was criticized by many including Renegades captain Aaron Finch. He said, ‘These would have been two easy catches tonight. They were both straight up. Both would have been out.
By the way, this will be called duplicity of Aaron Finch because this rule also came into existence because of him. During BBL-2, the rules were changed only because of Finch. A shot by Finch going for a six hit the pitched roof of the stadium, then it was declared a dead ball. After the controversy, there was a change in the rules, after which sixes were given in such cases.
