London. Indian cricketer Navdeep Saini has been in the headlines since his debut in county cricket. He made several memorable performances while debuting for Kent. A video of the 29-year-old Indian cricketer wreaking havoc with bowling in England has been shared by his team. However, in this video, he is seen doing wonders with the bat instead of the ball. Whoever is watching this shot of Saini is comparing it to the great former batsman AB de Villiers of the African team.
Actually de Villiers was adept at making shots in a different way around the field. Saini has also made a similar shot against the Glamorgan Cricket Team in the Royal London One-Day Cup. This strange shot of Saini has been shared by his team Kent from his Instagram account, which is becoming very viral.

In the video going viral, it is seen that after the bowler has bowled the ball, he simply pushes the ball to the leg side, succeeding it towards the off-stump. Meanwhile, there is so much contact between the ball and the bat that the ball goes straight outside the boundary for a four. Saini faced only three balls in this match for Kent. In the meantime, he played an important role in taking the team past 300 runs due to this fine shot.
Talking about this match, in this match played on August 4, Kent, batting first, had set a big target of 305 runs in front of Glamorgan for the loss of eight wickets in 50 overs. While chasing the target in the field, Glamorgan’s team achieved this target on the last ball with three wickets remaining.
In this match, there was no special charisma seen during Saini’s bowling. He spent 61 runs while bowling 10 overs for the team. During this, he got only one success.
