Kiwi Cricketer’s Switch Hit Attracts ICC’s Attention

New Zealand cricketer Glenn Phillips came up with a laughable switch hit during Auckland’s fight against Otago in the ongoing Ford Trophy 2019. The hit was mentioned in the Twitter handle of the International Cricket Council (ICC).

They posted the video of the shot on the social media and asked the followers to name it. Phillips was in excellent form as he hit 16 fours and three sixes to score 156 off just 135 deliveries.

Here is the shot played by Glenn Phillips that caught the eyeballs of ICC

 

Phillips, along with centurion Martin Guptill, was impressive against the Otago bowling attack and it was his storm of unusual shots that kept the crowd entertained.

The switch hit connected smartly for Phillips as the ball flowed over the third-man boundary for a six as Auckland posted a mammoth total of 310/5 in 50 overs.

In the process, Auckland won the encounter by 97 runs, thanks to brilliant knocks of Guptill and Phillips.

Batting first, they posted a brilliant total in spite of losing early wickets and bowled out Otago for 213. Neil Broom (66) and Mitch Renwick (31) tried to stage a fightback, but it was all in vain.

Besides being an amateur travel blogger, I am an out-and-out cricket buff, breathing this game 24x7. I endlessly surf a channel in hope that I get some riveting action of this game
