Embarrassing moments for a cricketer yuvraj hitwicket

No doubt, the most awkward form of being dismissed in cricket is getting out hit-wicket. This mainly occurs when the batsman’s bat or any part of his body crashes against the stumps and displace the bails while he is trying to negotiate a ball delivered to him.

The reason why it causes embarrassment for the batsman is because it gives the false impression that he got out intentionally.

Usually, it is not merely the fault of the cricketer who is dismissed, it is the moisture on the ground which is responsible for it as his back foot may slip and his boot may smash into the stumps. The history of cricket has also seen instances when the batsman went off balance while dealing with a bouncer and fell on the stumps.
