Sometimes, we do get to witness some weird sixes in cricket; they are always remembered by one and all.
Today, we came across a video in which Jeet Raval, a New Zealand batsman, smashed a bizarre 6 during 3rd Preliminary Final, The Ford Trophy at Auckland. Auckland was playing against Canterbury and Raval (Representating Auckland) had scored around 149 runs. His 149 comprised of 4 sixes and 10 fours.
However, he hit one six which wooed the crowd. It was when Andrew Ellis was bowling to him; he bowled a short length delivery, thinking it would not give him chance to get runs. Fortunately, Raval hit a superb shot, but it hit the head of the bowler. It was so hard that it went for a 6.
When Raval hit the shot, Ellis didn’t know how to react. His hands got hurt too! Earlier, the umpire had signaled it as 4 but then, he eventually changed it to 6.
As a courteous gesture, Raval went to him to check if the injury was too serious.
