Mitchell Johnson grabs 7 for -35? You read that right

A week after he said goodbye to the Big Bash League, retired Australian fast bowler Mitchell Johnson grabbed a seven-wicket haul in indoor cricket.

Turning out for an indoor cricket team called The MBC in Perth last week, Johnson walked away with figures of 7 for -35 in two overs against Bowling Darts in a popular Monday night setting. For the uninitiated, the rules of indoor cricket – a popular format of the game in Australia which enjoys attraction especially with youngsters – a team loses five runs for each wicket that falls. Hence the negative runs in Johnson s run column.

Uniquely, Johnson recorded one dismissal as being stumped – a feat never achieved across 256 international appearances for Australia. And despite the presence of Australia s fourth most successful bowler in Test cricket, The MBC ended up losing to Bowling Darts by 51-100.

Johnson, 36, announced last month that he would not return Perth Scorchers for this summer s BBL season. He will, however, play in the T10 League in the UAE.
