Australian cricketer Fawad Ahmed once again suffered ‘brainfade’ (a temporary inability to concentrate or think clearly) on the cricket field. In March, Ahmed forgot to bring his bat while walking out to bat in a Sheffield Shield clash between Victoria and Western Australian and this time, he walked out with an incomplete kit to bat in a match between Victoria and Queensland. The Victorian spinner had everything in order except the size of the gloves. The 35-year-old wore the wrong gloves and the funniest part is that he only realised it while walking out to bat.
The last time something like this happened he shared a laugh with the Western Australia players. This time, Ahmed was seen was hitting his helmet with the bat for his silly mistake which is likely to turn him into a meme.
Here’s a fail compilation video of the Pakistan-born cricketer posted by cricket.com.au.
Well, at least Fawad Ahmed is improving!

The reluctance to come out and bat reflected in his batting too. In a Sheffield Shield match, his team was in trouble having lost 9 wickets in the first innings in a matter of 38 overs. Fawad did not make a difference with the bat as he got out after scoring just 1 run from 4 balls to Mitchell Swepson. Victoria got all out trailing by 18 runs in the first innings. Though he did well with the ball picking up two wickets in the first innings including that of Usman Khawaja.
Meanwhile, Victoria are under pressure as Queensland have taken a substantial lead of 272 runs in the second innings. Usman Khawaja was batting on 99 at Day 2, Stumps. Ahmed is yet to take a wicket in the second innings.
