All the Australian fans are now going crazy about how well Matthew Wade performed in their recent match. He did exactly what Michael Hussey had done 11 years ago and fans cannot just get enough of the fact.
The match resembled the one that happened in St Lucia to Saeed Ajmal and Shaheen Afridi, Pakistan’s best bowler of the tournament, was at the receiving end of the assault this time. They required 18 runs off nine balls and Wade turned the game towards their side by smashing three consecutive maximums. It left Australian fans in a frenzy just after he had offered a catch in the deep to Hasan Ali. He ran in well to cover the ground and fluffed the catch which then led to the next three balls. Things started getting heated up and Matthew Wade’s performance was shocking.
His post was always questioned by many in the lead-up to the World Cup as he was batting down the order but when it mattered the most. Now his fans are amazing and talking about the sixes, it started with the southpaw. It took the bowler by surprise playing a scoop shot along with him getting low very early. He put his bat just in time and the ball traveled just like he was used to doing it in the Big Bash League (BBL). Well, his experience spoke now and made him a hero. The equation then came down to 12 runs off the last eight balls.
The Pakistan team still had an opportunity but the increasing pressure on Shaheen Afridi made him land one on length right into the batter’s arc. Matthew Wade took the chance and went ahead to deliver into the stands. It dashes the opponent’s hopes which went ahead to create a history for the team of Australia. The team needed only six runs off seven balls, and Matthew Wade was looking confident to win. He took everyone by shock when he decided to finish the game with a six. No other scoop and he played the scoop shot with utmost precision.
Talking About all of his three sixes, to make a note of them being classic and fans are truly happy about it. Showing and setting a perfect example of how T20 Cricket has changed batting, Wade was the star of the match for sure. Well, not many had thought the Trans-Tasman rivals (Australia and New Zealand) would be playing the final and the expectation was completely different for the T20 World Cup in Asia. The World Cup has now a new turn with much more thrill and excitement and it will all be seen on November 14. There is a new champion in the shortest format of the game set.
