VIDEO: George Bailey’s cheeky high 5 with umpire


The year 2017 is going to end and George Bailey is no longer part of the Australian cricket team. With Australia’s selectors building the team around youngsters for the 2019 World Cup in England, the 35-year old Tasmanian has been relegated to the periphery. However, he is still grabbing headlines.

During a match against New South Wales in the Sheffield Shield, the Tasmania skipper went for a cheeky high 5 with the square leg umpire after taking a catch.

Here’s the video:

Earlier, while batting Bailey brought back his old batting stance, which he used for the first time during last year’s ODI series against New Zealand. Though back then, he couldn’t score much with his funny stance, this time he was able to make the most of it on his way to a fifty.

He scored 71 and it was during this innings the former Australia captain decided to exhibit his unique batting stance against Doug Bollinger and Trent Copeland.

The way he stood on the crease gave the impression that he was facing a bowler running in from cover.
