Will Jacks, an all-rounder for England, has been a revelation in the ongoing South Africa Twenty20 tournament, and he once again demonstrated his brilliance by imitating a renowned shot played by Virat Kohli, a batsman for the Indian cricket team.
The MI Cape Town onslaught of Sam Curran, Kagiso Rabada, Rashid Khan, and Jofra Archer appeared to be no match for Jacks, who is presently playing for Pretoria Capitals. Jacks appeared to be in perfect command of the situation.
The young batsman ended up reaching a half century off of just 19 balls, and while he was batting, he hit Archer for a tremendous six right down the ground, just as Virat Kohli did in the T20 World Cup 2022 match against Pakistan. The young batsman also ended up scoring a half century.
Wills moved forward a couple of feet to meet the short-pitched ball, and then he smacked it directly over the bowler’s head. Kohli did the same thing against Haris Rauf.
The talent displayed by the English batter put the spectators in a state of awe, and commentator Mark Nicholas afterwards referred to it as the “shot of the week.”
Wills has an incredible strike rate of over 200 and has scored 270 runs, making him the current leader in the league in terms of run scoring.
Since he was purchased by Royal Challengers Bangalore for the price of Rs 3.2 crore during the auction, he will also be playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) alongside Virat Kohli during this season’s competition.
Wills was successful in guiding the Pretoria Capitals to a respectable score of 182 despite the fact that the MI Capitals bowlers took seven wickets in the final 13 overs of the innings.
The best bowlers for the Capitals during their reply were Wayne Parnell and Anrich Nortje, and Adil Rashid took two wickets to help take the Capitals to victory.
