During a club cricket game between Mildenhall Cricket Club and Hadleigh CC in England, pacer Jonah Handy delivered a wonderful in-swinging delivery to leave the batter clueless while cleaning him up.
In the game of cricket, Swing bowling is a dying art and only a few pacers across the globe possess this art. There are a few better sights in cricket when a pacer is swinging the ball in the air and making the batter dance to his tunes. While cricket is always said to be a batters’ game, quality swing bowling brings the balance to the competition between the bat and the ball.
England are known for their club cricket and currently, the club season is active there. Recently, a game between the first team of Hadleigh CC and the second team of Mildenhall CC was hosted by the latter at the Mildenhall Cricket Ground.
