Russell's bat was initially banned as according to the match official, the bat left a black marks on the ball and was later banned by the Big Bash Bosses. 

On Tuesday, Cricket Australia's board reversed the order on ban after assurances that the bat had been modified with the addition of a "clear laminate cover", thus preventing ball from getting distorted.
