The controversial catch in the Big Bash League has sparked an uproar after Sydney Sixers captain Moises Henriques appeared to take a stunning catch to remove Melbourne Stars opener Marcus Stoinis. Henriques appeared to scrape the ball along the grass as he fell to the ground, but the third umpire surprisingly upheld the dismissal despite the controversy.

Former players and cricket commentators took to social media to criticize the decision, with some arguing that the catch should not have been allowed. One former player described the decision as “flat out wrong” and expressed concern that it could jeopardize the integrity of the tournament. However, others, including former paceman Trent Copeland, called for a change in the rules to make Henriques’ catch legal.

Despite the controversy, the Stars managed to secure their first win of the BBL season by four wickets. The decision and its aftermath have sparked debate and disagreement among players, commentators, and fans alike.
