Compared to Endean, Hilditch was even unluckier. In the Test match against Pakistan at Perth, he was at the non-strikers end and had scored 29 runs when a wide throw came his way. Hilditch picked up the ball and gave it to the bowler Sarfaraz Khan. Khan appealed and the umpire ruled Hilditch out. Well, that was no way close to being in the spirit of the game, many felt including Pakistani player Asif Iqbal who commented on the incident as totally against the morality. This is the only case of handling the ball when a non-striker was given out in this mode.
