While the Team Abu Dhabi vs Northern Warriors clash in Abu Dhabi T10 League, 2021 witnessed some great action between the ball and bat, Rohan Mustafa’s major gaffe near the boundary ropes stole the limelight. The UAE international was fielding near the boundary rope when Warriors opener Waseem Muhammad hit the ball towards him. Although the ball wasn’t far away from Mustafa and should have been stopped smoothly, the 32-year-old couldn’t do much as he was changing his jersey. While he tried to run towards the ball, he only had half the shirt on and ended up conceding a boundary.

This indeed was one of the most bizarre instances on the cricket field as players of both teams were left in splits. However, the blooper proved to be costly for Team Abu Dhabi as Northern Warriors won the game in the very last ball of the match. Interestingly, Mustafa again miss-fielded in the final ball, allowing Rovman Powell to take two runs and take Northern Warriors to an eight-wicket triumph. However, no fielding error can come even closer to the UAE cricketer’s shirtless gaffe. Have a look!

His 34-ball 76 and some fielding errors for Rohan Mustafa helped Northern Warriors win the match by eight wickets.
