Brain Faid Moment
During the India tour of Australia in 2017, Australian Captain Steve Smith was caught seeking advice in the Dressing Room. After the match, he called that moment as a “Brain Faid” moment. From then these weird moments in cricket are called the “Brain Faid” moments.
A similar incident of Brain Faid happened during yesterday’s match between West India and Afghanistan. West Indies is on tour of Afghanistan for 3 ODI, 3 T 20I and for the only test. During the first inning when Afghanistan was batting after losing the toss, Ikram Alikhil got run out in a very unusual way.
Afghanistan was a good position at 126 for 2 after losing both the openers very early. On the 3rd ball of 27 over Rahmat played a shot and took a single to complete his fifty. On the other hand, Ikram was so keen to congratulate his partner that he got himself run out in a very unusual way.
