Watch: The Super Man save by Michael Klinger in BBL: The Hobart Hurricanes played Perth Scorchers yesterday. The Perth Scorchers won the match Agar But this video is not about the match summary, it’s about the superman like effort to save an certain six by Michael Klinger.
The Hurricanes where chasing a challenging score of 141 runs. The chase started off a bit shaky as the hurricanes lost early wickets in the beginning, but Michael Hill and Shoaib Malik started to steady the innings.
Ashton Agar started the over eighth over of the innings. The second ball by Agar was pitched in at good length; Malik got back and pulled the ball towards the direction of deep mid-wicket. There was no fielder at that position and this fact encouraged Shoaib Malik to hit in that area. But Michael Klinger left everyone speechless with his agile and innovative fielding.
The ball, right from the moment it got hit off the bat of Shoaib Malik was travelling for six runs until Michael Klinger came running and leaped to push the ball inside the boundary rope. He came backagain quickly to complete his job after the fall as he threw the ball to the Wicket keeper. This effort saved five valuable runs for the Perth Scorchers as the batsmans only managed to take a single run.
The effort was applauded by his teammate and the crowd.
