The Proteas’ clumsy four-wicket defeat to a Prime Minister’s XI on Wednesday was no laughing matter.
After all, the tour match served as South Africa’s only warm-up before the three-match ODI series against Australia starting on Sunday.
However, skipper Faf du Plessis did have a chuckle during the home side’s innings when his counterpart, George Bailey, came out to bat with one of the weirdest stances ever seen.
Wouldn’t you laugh also if you had to witness this?

It clearly worked for Bailey though – he ended unbeaten on 51.
