WATCH: Josh Inglis plays an unbelievable shot in Vitality T20 Blast
When you hear, "out of the cricket book," whose name you most think of? Obviously, AB De Villiers, the man who we call Mr 360, for his abilities to hit the ball out of the park and any parts of the ground.
But it has become more common in modern cricket. We often see several cricketers play some unorthodox shots, which has been a rare case in the history of cricket.
But in the modern era, not only just International stars but also domestic cricketers have become experts at playing some unorthodox shots.
And that is what we saw in the recent T20 Blast match between Leicestershire and Northampton. Leicestershire batsman Josh Inglis played an unorthodox reverse sweep to score a boundary. His initial thought was to play a reverse sweep, but when he saw a back of the length bowl, he changed his stance to push it towards the third man for a four. Inglis scored a century in the match. You can watch the video of that shot here:
