Finland’s bizarre fielding set-up against England, video goes viral


Finland’s bizarre fielding set-up against England during European Championship Cricket has gone viral as you don’t see a slips cordon like this very often during a cricket match.

During Finland’s European Championship Cricket clash against an England XI, they won the toss and elected to field, starting the match with an incredibly attacking field.

With Finland having only won one game so far, a five run victory over Italy, they lined up with eight slip fielders and a leg slip for the first ball.

And the commentator tasked with broadcasting the action could not quite believe what he was seeing.

“Oh my goodness gracious me, look at this field,” he said. “We’ve got eight slips, and a leg slip for the first ball of the match to be bowled by Amjad Sher. Well, this is extraordinary.”

Cricket fans were also scratching their heads over the bizarre set-up, as social media was sent into a frenzy.
