Cricket is a funny game  and is one where innovation always have a big impact,  they say . The game of cricket, nowadays, is evolving with time and has seen innovations, from rules to the style of shot-selection. And the same was on display during a recent local  match.


In a video going viral on social media, a kid was seen playing a unique shot as he took the strike. The young kid dived forwards to hit a shot before the ball landed on the pitch, which fans called to be similar to sweep shot.

Seeing this video which has garnered more than 120K views so far, got mixed reactions from fans. While some hailed the shot striking ability to the kid, a few called this a variant of sweep shot.
