WATCH: Warner clubs two-bounce ball from Hafeez for massive six from outside pitch

Share

Australia’s run chase in the semi-finals against Pakistan began in the most incredible fashion with Shaheen Shah Afridi delivering a crunching first over that could easily walk into the best moments from this tournament. However, it turned out to be second-best on the night even thanks to David Warner’s excellent awareness off a near-dead ball.

In the 8th over of the Australian innings, Hafeez lost grip on the ball first up coming from around the wicket. The ball slipped out of his hands and pitched near his own end before pitching again closer to Warner. 

While most batters would have let it go as a dead ball, Warner stepped out proactively, converted it into a two-bounce loosened and clubbed it from outside the leg-side pitch strip, off the grass, and onto the second tier for a massive 87m six.
