When Brisbane Heat met the Hobart Hurricanes, KFC Big Bash League history was made on more than one occasion.

Another closely fought match that went down to the wire provided one of the strangest and most comical dismissals that you will see.

With the Heat at 131-5 chasing a total of 179, Australian Alex Ross pulled a shot to the fielder on the boundary, whose throw appeared to hit the batsman returning for his second run.

Ross, who had changed his running path, dived in a peculiar fashion in front of the ball that had been thrown by Jofra Archer, resulting in him knocking the ball onto his stumps.

The confused Hurricanes team appealed and Archer was unable to hold back his laughter with the whole situation.

As the decision was reviewed, it became clear that Alex Ross had tried to prevent the run out, and as a result the first obstructing of field dismissal in Big Bash League history was awarded.

This turned out to be a huge moment in the match, as Ross, looking well-set on 26, was keeping his team in contention of catching Hobart's score.

However, this wasn't the only history-making moment of the tie as Hurricanes opener D'arcy Short made a match-winning knock of 122 which broke the record of the largest score in BBL history.

An extremely entertaining match-up between these two sides also saw Jofra Archer take a contender for catch of the tournament as he dismissed Ben Cutting.

Despite this, the hilarious and frankly strange wicket of Alex Ross will be remembered for a long time and goes down in the history books of the Big Bash League.

These two sides meet again in the BBL in four days' time, which will hopefully provide more entertaining and record-breaking highlights.
