IPL 2021: Jonny Bairstow destroys MI bowlers, smashes fridge glass


Jonny Bairstow was back at the opening slot and back at the bowling attack destruction. Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) batsman, who beat at No.4 in his team’s first two games, returned to his favorable position and just gave an explosive start to his side.

SRH made four changes to their line-up and one of those changes was Wriddhiman Saha meaning Bairstow was back on top and had an immediate impact. They started cautiously with 5/0 in the first two overs but the taps opened after that from the third where the right-hander parted Trent Boult.

The first ball four, four more on the second, the next ball a six. However, it was not normal beyond the shot limit, Bairstow hit between the long and straight border and directly into the SRH dugout canoe and he directly hit the beverage refrigerator and smashed the glass. After that shot, Bairstow sent the ball to another limit taking 18 points.

Bairstow continued his marauding form and hit Adam Milne for some six to get the SRH side to a plane, which was much needed on the Chepauk runway, which gets slower and slower as the sleeves are progressing.
