FORMER ENGLAND opener Michael Carberry manages to miss the ball and lose the bat in one of most bizarre outcomes one will see at the crease.

The 34-year-old batsman played the unorthodox shot during a Twenty20 Big Bash League game on Monday (Dec 22) between the Perth Scorchers’ and Adelaide Strikers.

Striker's bowler Kane Williamson delivers a fast ball which Carberry attempts to smash out of the ground. Instead of watching the ball sail over the boundary, bemused players, umpires and spectators see the bat hurtle into the atmosphere.

Fortunately no birds or planes were flying overhead and the no fielders were bold enough to attempt to catch the AWOL bat.
