The ICC World Cup 2019 has already seen some interesting matches, and three washouts, with several such instances in the bank for the next one month.

However, besides these, there have also been a few weird incidents, which fans have witnessed in this edition of the tournament.

Weird six

Six after hitting the wicket!

Six after hitting the wicket!

Generally, we see a batsman hitting the ball hard with his bat so that it travels a long distance to land into the stands.

However, this World Cup saw a weird instance when the ball, after hitting the stumps traveled over the ropes.

This happened when Jofra Archer clean bowled Bangladesh's Soumya Sarkar. He delivered a stunning delivery that the ball went the distance.

Sixer off the stumps!

Dhoni's gloves

MS Dhoni's gloves draw attention, and an unwanted controversy

Everyone knows that Dhoni has the rank of Lieutenant Colonel with the Indian Army.

As a result, Dhoni had imprinted the logo of 'sacrifice' on his wicket-keeping gloves to honor the brave soldiers.

However, the International Cricket Council (ICC) intervened and asked Dhoni to get the logo removed, since it violated the code of conduct.

Despite the request by BCCI, ICC upheld its decision.

Sticky bails

Bails refuse to fall off

Bails refuse to fall off

The introduction of zing bails has made things easier for the umpires.

However, of late, there has been a controversy surrounding it.

On more than three instances, the bails have refused to fall off, despite being hit hard by the bowlers.

As per the laws, the batsman cannot be dismissed unless the bails are dislodged, thus zing bails are giving the batsmen a lifeline.

Unfair axe!

Afghanistan's Mohammad Shahzad threatens to quit cricket

Afghanistan's wicket-keeper batsman Mohammad Shahzad has embroiled himself in a controversy after he threatened to quit cricket following his axe from the squad.

As per the Afghanistan Cricket Board, Shahzad is suffering from a knee injury. He has been deemed unfit, leading to him being replaced.

However, Shahzad has said that he is perfectly fit and that there is a foul play.

No AB

CSA reject AB's offer to make international return

CSA reject AB's offer to make international return

South Africa's prolific retired batsman AB de Villiers made headlines this month after it was revealed that he had applied for an international return, prior to the World Cup.

However, the offer was rejected by Cricket South Africa (CSA) as he was too late to apply for a return.

Further, the team was 99% ready, while further changes were not possible.

Three matches washed out in a week due to rain

This World Cup has already seen three matches being rain affected, leading to washouts with no result. While it is the most in a single edition of the tournament to date, more are likely to follow, in case one trusts Google Weather. Is this weird?
