Munro plays a reverse late cut against Renegades in BBL



The 10th edition of the Big Bash League has by far lived up to the expectations in terms of entertainment, thrill and fun. We saw fielders taking blinders with ease and the league also witnessed batsmen whacking the balls out the park quite easily.

The league also witnessed quite a few funny moments and the best of which came during the match between Melbourne Stars and Hobart Hurricanes. Dawid Malan launched a six into the stands where a man tried to take a catch ended up deflecting it into beer glass of the elderly man sitting next to him.

In an interesting turn of events, the ball deflected the man’s hands and fell into the beer glass of another man sitting next to him. The man refused to return the ball to the fielder as he enjoyed drinking the beer along with the cricket ball.

Munro plays a reverse late cut in BBL

During the match between Perth Scorchers and Melbourne Renegades, New Zealand international Colin Munro displayed a sheer piece of batting skills by playing a reverse late cut. Although he initially planned for a switch hit, Renegades pacer Peter Hatzoglou didn’t give him room to go for the hit.

However, Munro knew he couldn’t play the switch hit and he changed his decision in a split second by playing reverse late cut for a single. The left-handed batsman tried something different and ended up nudging the ball to short fine leg fielder for a run.

Talking about the game, Scorchers were at their impressive best while playing against Renegades. They posted 185/3 in their quota of 20 overs. Thanks to Josh Inglis who played a sublime knock of 72* off 41 balls including 7 fours and 2 sixes.

Colin Munro was the second-best batsman for Scorchers as he scored a vital 52 off 31 balls including 1 four and 5 sixes. In reply, Renegades were bowled out for 89. Aaron Hardie and Fawad Ahmed took 2 wickets each.

On the other hand, Renegades are going through a bad patch this season. They are languishing at the bottom of the points table. They managed to win just 1 game so far and lost as many as 7 games. Renegades collected only 5 points this season.
