T20 World Cup 2021: "That was one of the best things I've ever seen in the game of cricket" - Justin Langer


After several cricketers including Gautam Gambhir and Harbhajan Singh, the head coach of the Australian cricket team Justin Langer has now opened about the controversial shot played by David Warner.

Mohammad Hafeez bowled a bizarre delivery that went on bouncing two times to David Warner who was quick enough to smash it towards the mid-on region. After looking at that shot, many cricketers and coaches have made controversial comments and shared their views.

However, Justin Langer applaud David Warner and claimed that it is one of the best things that he witnessed in the history of cricket. While speaking to ESPN Cricinfo, Justin Langer said "Oh my ghosh, that was one of the best things I've ever seen in the game of cricket. I can't believe anyone would have the instincts to do that. It was unbelievable.

In fact, most people would have probably been sure of what to do. It was one of the best things I've seen on a cricket field to be completely honest. To have those instincts - one it's a no-ball and then to have the talent and ability to hit it for six - unbelievable. And the he walked of course, when he nicked it. Anyone who thinks it's unsportsmanlike, probably evens it up a bit."

David Warner played a crucial knock in the 2nd semi-final against Pakistan as he missed his well deserved fifty by just one run. Still, he did the damage for the Pakistan team which was followed by Marcus Stoinis and Matthew Wade.

Both the batsmen played well in the middle and slog overs and finished the match for their side. Shaheen Afridi and Hassan Ali would not forget this match as Hassan Ali dropped a catch of Matthew Wade that cost the winning sixes that was smashed in the over of Shaheen Afridi.

Besides, after looking at that bizarre shot from David Warner, Adam Zampa also said a few words in the same video posted by ESPN Cricinfo. "I haven't really thought about it if I'd bowled it, but I was quite surprised at how far Davey Warner could hit that ball.

If you have got a ball that's rolling at you like that and bounces that high off the ground and its on it's way down, to hit it that far is a pretty mean feat. He is a strong boy, Davey," Adam Zampa said.
