Actually, Sam Harper came to bat for Melbourne Renegades at the crease. He was facing the very first ball. The ball was in the hands of spin bowler Matthew Short.

On seeing this ball at first glance, it seemed that he had taken an edge with the bat.

Why was the batsman not out?

As soon as the ball hit the wicketkeeper’s hands, Trevid Head, standing in the slips, broke down on him at the speed of a leopard and took a wonderful catch. After taking the catch, Trevid Head started celebrating the wicket with his team, but the umpire gave the batsman not out because there was no connection between the ball and the bat when the batsman played the shot. In this way the batsman Sam Harper was saved from getting out.
