Matthew Wade hits one-handed boundary: The Hurricanes’ continued his rich returns on the back of another half-century.
During the 55th match of the ongoing ninth season of the Big Bash League between Adelaide Strikers and Hobart Hurricanes in Adelaide, Hobart Hurricanes captain Matthew Wade continued his rich returns in the tournament on the back of his 17th T20 half-century.
Having already hit three half-centuries in the tournament, Wade registered his third consecutive half-century to provide Hobart with yet another quickfire start.
While Wade tonked the opposition bowlers to all parts of the ground, one particular shot which earned appreciation was his one-handed boundary off Adelaide Strikers fast bowler Billy Stanlake in the eight over.
On the fourth delivery of the eighth over, Wade pulled a Stanlake delivery off hand to cross the 50-run mark. Bowling his first over, Stanlake leaked 22 runs as Wade also hit him for two sixes in the same over.
On the last delivery of the over, Strikers batsman Jonathan Wells dropped Wade at deep square leg to give a massive reprieve to the hosts. At the time of writing this article, Wade is in vicinity of scoring his maiden T20 century.
