Moeen Ali Takes Unwanted Way to Hit A Six But Fails

Few players could claim a stroke as unusual as what Moeen Ali demonstrated against South Africa on Wednesday. Since the emergence of T20 cricket, cricket players have adopted more eccentric shots over the previous ten years. England defeated South Africa in the third and final ODI of their series, but the home team ultimately prevailed 2-1.

Dawid Malan, who finished with 118, was the only one of England’s top four batters to reach double figures when they started the batting. Jos Buttler, the captain and wicketkeeper, also scored a century, scoring 131 runs off just 127 deliveries.

Both shared 232 runs partnership which was their highest against South Africa in ODIs. The match was full of entertaining passage, fans really enjoyed it because it never went dead for a minute until Jofra Archer ended South Africa’s monumental attempt to win the game.

In the final stages, Ali contributed significant runs as well. Before being bowled by Lungi Ngidi, he smashed a quickfire 41 off 23 balls. His rear-guard performance prevented England from scoring a very manageable total of 346/7, and the tourists then dismissed South Africa for 287.

The match’s most famous moment was Ali’s attempt at a one-handed reverse slap stroke, which was both amusing and unsuccessful. After entirely failing in his effort to knock Tabraiz Shamsi’s left-arm wrist spin to the boundary, Ali decided not to attempt the unusual shot again. On the very next ball, Moeen Ali hit a six over long on.

Ali’s unconventional shot attempt delighted everyone in the cricket world. He humiliated Shamsi back over his head with the very next ball for one of the four sixes he struck in his brief innings, so it was a wise decision not to do it again.

Fans continued to respond on social media in equal parts of astonishment and enjoyment despite this. Many claimed they had never saw a player attempt such an unusual move.

It was an event of amusement as Moeen Ali entertained everyone with his quickfire 23 balls 41. With a bunch of standout performers, England were able to win the match quite confidently in the end. However when Heinrich Klaasen was on the crease, England were under a constant pressure because he was accumulating 10 runs per over quite easily.

In the end, England held their nerves and won the match which didn’t do them much good in context of series but it was well demanded comeback.
