5 bowlers at the receiving end of epic batting milestones
- 5 not so famous bowlers who were at the receiving end when epic Batting milestones were made
Any batsman who boasts of setting a world record on the field always sees it through a bowler. He can only get to the so-called milestone if he was able to conquer the bowler, both technically and intellectually. On many occasions, we see bowlers staying helpless and without motivation when the batsman goes after him so easily.It doesnt matter how good a bowler you are – if the batsman is on song, you cannot really stop him. A classic example of the above statement would be the curious case of one of England’s finest fast bowlers, Stuart Broad. He became the scapegoat of Yuvraj Singh’s fury during the first T20 World Cup in South Africa.In ODIs and Tests, there are many batting milestones that may not be broken anytime soon in the future. Here we take a look at 5 bowlers who were not regular members of the squad or who were not very famous for their bowling prowess but were on the receiving end of some epic milestones in batting, both in the ODI and Test Cricket.
#5 Daan van Bunge
It was in the 2007 ICC Cricket World Cup that something sensational happened in St. Kitts during the group match between South Africa and Netherlands. Herschelle Gibbs hit six consecutive 6s off Dan Van Bunge. This was the first time in the history of ODIs that someone had achieved this unbelievable feat.
Gibbs doing it in the World Cup makes it all the more special. A young infamous Netherlands bowler, Dan Van Bunge, became famous after he got hit for 36 in one over.
