New Delhi: Daniel Christian, who last played for Australia in April, 2014, has created a fair amount of sensation in the ongoing KFC Big Bash League with his big hitting skills.
On Tuesday, in a contest between Hobart Hurricanes and Brisbane Heat, Christian playing for the Hurricanes smacked a huge six towards cow corner in the 19th over off the bowling of Luke Feldman, a shot is being called as a 117-metre hit over the boundary!
The monster hit took everyone in the Gabba by surprise as the ball sailed in the air after leaving Christian's bat, and went onto the roof of the stadium, as Christian raced off to 56 runs off just 24 balls, helping the Hurricanes post a total of 194 runs for the loss of 4 wickets.
Christian's mammoth hitting proved to be a decisive knock, as Brisbane Heat could not match up to the Hurricanes' fireworks, even though an astonishing knock by Heat batsman Chris Lynn (101 off 51 balls) gave the Hurricanes some anxious moments.
