A Game Of Cricket Is Not A Science, Its An Art: Former Umpire Simon Taufel

India vs Australia for many years has been one of the most competitive cricket series ever. This year too it has been full of surprises and has entertained each and every viewer. It is the first series after the lockdown due to corona virus to allow spectators inside the stadium with precautions. In the ODI series the initial 2 games were just one-sided with the Australian team completely dominating the games and Indian team were just not finding anything to get back into the series.

Steve Smith scored tons in both the matches and Indian bowlers became mere spectators of Australia’s dominance with the bat. It was the third ODI when India bounced back into the series and Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja and Shardul Thakur helped India to finish series at 2-1. 

Maxwell’s switch hit:

In the final ODI, the match was well in Australia’s grip till Maxwell was batting on the ground. He was smashing sixes all over the park and wasn’t facing any difficulty in his batting. The best shot of the match came when he smashed Kuldeep Yadav for a six at point with his switch hit shot. The shot took everyone by surprise as it went for a long six.

What Taufel has to say:

When the former World number 1 umpire Simon Taufel was asked about the shot and it’s validity in cricket, he said that the shot was amazing and cricket is an art not a science that we will find logic behind everything and the shot was amazing to watch.
