Jason Holder hits a huge six in BBL

West Indies captain Jason Holder did make a mark in the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League. Although he remained unsold in the auction, he turned up late in the cash-rich league as he was roped in by Sunrisers Hyderabad.

The all-rounder played just 7 games in the season where he took as many as 14 wickets to his name. He is a perfect T20 material where he can score runs besides taking wickets in important phases of the game.

After his venture at the United Arab Emirates, he flew to New Zealand along with teammates to play T20I and Test series. Unfortunately, the visitors didn’t manage to secure a single win from the tour.

After a disappointing tour, Holder flew to Australia to play the franchise cricket for the very first time. The all-rounder is representing Sydney Sixers in the BBL. Playing his debut match, Holder announced his arrival in style by hitting a huge six on the very first ball.

During the fag end of Sixers’ innings, Wes Agar was given the ball to do the trick of Adelaide Strikers. However, as it turned out, he bowled a short-pitched ball to West Indies skipper Holder.

Holder responded straight away with a six which travelled far and got stuck on a tree. The spectators who were standing there tried their best to take the ball. Since it was getting a tad late, the on-field umpires changed their mind to replace it with new white leather.

The 29-year-old all-rounder went about his business and scored 11 off just 5 balls. He remained unbeaten in the end as he hit a four and a six to his name. His small contribution helped his team post 177/5 in 20 overs.

Daniel Christian was the pick of the batsmen as he scored a quick-fire 50 off 16 balls with the help of 4 fours and 5 sixes at a strike-rate of 312.50. Sixers’ captain Daniel Hughes scored an unbeaten 46 off 41 including four and 2 sixes.

Worrall and Wes Agar picked up 2 wickets each for the Strikers. In reply, Strikers were restricted to 139/7 in their quota of 20 overs. Ben Manenti, Carlos Brathwaite and Steve O’Keefe took 2 wickets apiece for the Sixers.

Johnathan Wells remained unbeaten throughout the game but his 38-run-knock was not enough as he lost partners from the other end. Sydney Sixers won the game by 38 runs.
