Bizarre moment Sheffield Shield gun boots rivals’ helmet away

The Sheffield Shield witnessed bizarre scenes on Thursday as South Australia opener Jake Weatherald kicked away a Queensland helmet that had been placed on the pitch.

During the change of overs, a Queensland fielder placed the helmet directly in front of the stumps for a teammate to pick up – or to annoy the batters – only for Weatherald to boot it some metres away.

A frustrated Queensland captain Usman Khawaja fired up at the batter in response, before the umpire arrived to lay down the law.

Weatherald was on nine runs at the time, but would only manage 26 before he was caught at square leg by Matthew Renshaw off Sandhu’s bowling. Weatherald managed 33 in the first SA innings as they were bowled out for 102 in reply to Queensland’s 299, before the follow on was enforced.

It was bad news for prospective Test gloveman Alex Carey in his bead to unseat Tim Paine for the Ashes, managing scores of just 2 and 3.
