4. 2. 6. 4. 4. 2. 4. 6. 6.
The above mentioned numbers are not mere numbers but the amount of runs scored by Christopher Henry Morris on the nine balls that he faced in today’s encounter against Rising Pune Supergiant.
Yes! Morris scored 38* off nine deliveries which included four fours and three maximums. It was an innings which perhaps put the Daredevils from a strong position to a certain indomitable position. Morris came in to bat ahead of Karun Nair when only 10 deliveries were left in the innings. He played nine out of them and made full use of them. The 29-year old South African all-rounder collected 23 runs from Ben Stroke’s last over.
An innings of blitz came at an strike rate of 422.22, which was the highest strike rate in an innings of 5+ balls in IPL. Watch the full video:
