Sehwag amazed that Shaw ability to hit 6 fours in an over
Experts often draw similarities of Prithvi Shaw’s batting style and approach to Virender Sehwag’s. Shaw scored a belligerent 82 off 41 balls vs KKR and his innings was hailed by Sehwag in his post-match show with cricbuzz.
Sehwag amazed that Shaw ability to hit 6 fours in an over. Sehwag was particularly impressed with the consecutive fours that Shaw hit in the first over of the chase against his under 19 colleague Shivam Mavi. He mentioned that it is extremely difficult to achieve the target of hitting 6 consecutive fours or sixes in one over as one have to pick the gaps in the field perfectly in IPL.
Sehwag said that he also dreamt many times of hitting bowlers for six consecutive boundaries but never achieved that in his career, the maximum he could hit was around 20 runs.
Sehwag amazed that Shaw ability to hit 6 fours in an over. Sehwag added that even though Shaw is aware of Mavi’s bowling having played together at under 19 levels, still it is not easy to hit for 6 fours in an over. Sehwag also added that he never could hit Ashis Nehra for 6 fours despite having played with him for so long.
Indeed these were great words from the legend about Shaw, about whom the cricket fraternity feels that he has got the swagger of Viru.
