Rashid took two wickets for 15 runs, Rashid hit two sixes and two fours in his innings. He took two wickets for 15 in four during his bowling. He bowled Shaun Marsh and Will Sutherland. With the help of Rashid's all-round, Adelaide beat Melbourne by 18 runs.
Instead of giving the umpire out, the nose started scratching. During this match, another strange incident happened. Rashid was bowling in the 17th over. His googly batter hit the pad of Beau Webster. Rashid appealed to LBW. Umpire Greg Davidson then slowly raised his finger, but his nose began to scratch. Rashid felt that he gave out. Davidson later explained to him that he was raising fingers to scratch his nose, not a sign of an out.
Ra @ rashidkhan_19 was celebrating while the umpire was having a scratch. But the @StrikersBBL star believes the right call was made in the end #nosegate @BKTtires | # BBL09 pic.twitter.com/xu4ZmWkjlR
