Srinagar: In modern day cricket, a player tries new innovations every other day which sometimes turn into bizarre one. Such was the case on Wednesday , when England star batter Moeen Ali attempted one such bizarre attempt in the match against South Africa.
England beat South Africa by 59 runs in Kimberley. The Proteas did win the series 2-1, but a loss in the final match of the series.
England had a brilliant outing in the third ODI, as the side made a comeback of 14/3 to scoring 346/7 in fifty overs, thanks to Dawid Malan (118) and Jos Buttler’s (131) brilliant centuries. Moeen Ali (41 off 23) deliveries also displayed his attacking range as he smashed the South African bowlers around the park in a brief stay at the crease.
During his innings, Moeen attempted a rather bizarre shot that sent the internet into frenzy. Facing Tabraiz Shamsi in the 44th over of the innings, Moeen took his bottom hand off the bat and single-handed attempted a reverse hit; however, the all-rounder missed the delivery.
Soon after the attempt, the incident got viral on internet even with the likes of cricketer Jimmy Neesham making fun out of it.
