matthew cross five boundaries: scotland batsman matthew cross smash five 4s to new zealand’s adam milne after maiden over in t20 world cup: 4,4,4,4,4
Scotland may have lost on Wednesday night in the ongoing World T20 in the UAE, but it also brought sweat on New Zealand’s forehead. Batting first, New Zealand scored 172 runs after losing the toss at the Dubai International Stadium. Chasing a huge target, Scotland batted brilliantly. But 16 runs away from victory. Although many Scottish batsmen impressed in this runchase, but the gathering took away Matthew Cross.
It is about the sixth, that is, the last over of the powerplay. The score was only 28 runs in five overs for the loss of one wicket. Captain Kane put the stormy pacer Adam Milne on the bowling. The scoreboard needed to speed up. Wicket-keeper batsman Matthew Cross, who was on strike, hit five balls in five consecutive deliveries.
First boundary square leg, second fine leg, third cover, over fourth cover and towards fifth lane. But could not hit six consecutive fours in six balls. He missed the last ball. After this flamboyant innings, the bat of Matthew Cross remained silent for the next few overs. He became the victim of Team Saudi by scoring 27 runs in 29 balls.
Scotland team could only manage 156 runs in 20 overs for the loss of 5 wickets. Michael Leask (42) scored the most runs for the team. Trent Boult and Ish Sodhi got two successes each for New Zealand. At the same time, Tim Southee got a wicket.
Earlier, the New Zealand team, who came out to bat, had a satisfactory start. The team scored 52 runs in the powerplay itself for the loss of two important wickets. Guptill missed his century after scoring 93 runs in 57 balls with the help of six fours and seven sixes. After this, New Zealand’s score reached 172 runs due to James Neesham (10) and Mitchell Santner (2). Safyan Sharif and Bradley Wheel took two wickets each for Scotland.
