The Match 49 of the Women’s Big Bash League 2023 saw a bizarre moment as Brisbane Heat were penalized for five runs after Amelia Kerr caught the ball using a towel. The incident took place on the second ball of the tenth over as Ashleigh Gardner played the ball towards long-on for a single. The fielder collected the ball and threw it towards the non-striker’s end where Kerr collected it using a towel. The umpire took notice of the incident and immediately awarded five runs to Sydney Sixers.
