by Wisden Staff 2 minute read

Josh Inglis unleashed an extraordinary switch hit during a T20 Blast game between Leicestershire and Northamptonshire en route his unbeaten knock of 103.

The Australia batsman hit the innovative stroke in the 15th over of the Leicestershire innings by moving across to reverse swat a short, wide delivery from the fast bowler to the third man fence.

Though Inglis appeared to have initially readied himself to play a scoop over short fine leg, the batsman, who was in excellent nick through the innings, changed his mind after the ball had been released to hit a four.

Leicestershire eventually won the game by 34 runs.
