Modern day batsman have often come up with several innovative shots from time to time, especially with the evolution of the shortest format of the game – the ‘Helicopter Shot’, the ‘Switch Hit’ and the ‘Dilscoop’ to name a few. Sam Harper came up with an unusual shot which went for a six leaving fans stunned in the ongoing edition of the Big Bash League (BBL).
The incident occurred in a recent game between the Melbourne Renegades and the Perth Scorchers in the BBL. Mitchell Marsh, who was bowling the 13th over of the innings for the Scorchers, bowled the first ball on length around middle and leg. Harper moved across the stumps and helped it on its way straight back over the wicketkeeper’s head.
The ball sailed all the way past the ropes, much to the amazement of the fans in the stadium. Marsh and the fielders were stunned to the extent that they could not believe their eyes. It was innovation at his best from the Renegades batsman as even the commentators were left shocked as to what had happened in the middle.
