Moises Henriques’ Six In Big Bash League Super Over
Tom Curran walked out with skipper Moises Henriques for Sydney Sixers. However, Tom Curran out on the very first ball of the super over. At this point, Sixers were in a dangerous situation as ball more wicket was on their hand. But, Moises Henriques’ unorthodox batting helped them reach 16 runs.
In 5th ball of the over Henriques played an unbelievable shot. Henriques shapes up to ramp. He had got nowhere close to the middle of the bat. He wanted to go over fine leg, the ball flew off the bottom part of the bat. And it had enough wings to clear the third man fence.
And then he goes the other way!

However, some drama was created after Alex hales smashed the 5th ball for a six. Now 6 required off the last ball. Curran went for a yorker which took an edge of Hales’ bat and raced away to the boundary for a four. But it doesn’t matter though, Thunder fell short by 2 runs. Tom Curran received man of the match award.
