Shahid Afridi 1st wicket, National T20 Cup 2016

Colin Munro is a world class New Zealand batsman who is doing great job recently after the retirement of old New Zealand legends. His presence in the team was felt tremendously yesterday against the first T20 match against Pakistan on 15th January. Munro’s record making innings could not win the match for his team but he has made his entry in the record book by scoring 50 runs on just 27 balls.

The left handed Munro went after Afridi’s bowling as well. The skipper Afridi was bowling with passion. But Munro had also hit Afridi for a six over the mid on boundary in the 7th over. Afridi made a huge appeal for leg before wicket on the last ball but it was declined by the umpire. Munro raced to 42 not out in the 8th over by hitting another six. He completed his half century by hitting a splendid high six in the 10th over. He was facing Wahab Riaz beautifully. He raised his bat in the air as the Auckland crowd roared for an entertaining performance. The ground atmosphere went electric with Newzealand flags all over in the air.Unluckily the last ball of the 10th over was misunderstood by Munro. He wanted to drive that ball towards cover but Wahab Riaz was fast and accurate. This time the ball went straight through his defenses and hit his off stomp. Munro lost his wicket by getting clean bold by Wahab Riaz. He played a splendid innings for his team and crowd. Munro had hit 2 fours and 6 sixes in his innings.Wahab Riaz looked at him angrily for making such a great effort as he went away towards the dressing room.

Early in the innings, Munro was looking dangerous. He started his big hitting against Umar Gull and hit him for a huge six on the On side. The ball went straight into the crowd. He went over the bowler’s head again and hit a massive six hitting the sight screen in the similar fashion. The most incredible six in the same over of Umar Gul was cheered by the crowd very much. The ball was high and short. Colin swung his bat hard and the ball went above the slips straight out of the boundary. Munro did a beautiful job to guide the fast delivery into the right direction. Even if there was a slip there, it would have been impossible for the slip fielder to catch it.
