After hitting a six on the first ball, Shardul Thakur bowled the second ball wide, which means Shardul Thakur had scored 7 runs in 1 ball.
Tom Latham then went on the attack and shot Shardul Thakur all around the ground. Tom Latham hit 4 consecutive fours in Shardul Thakur’s over. This over of Shardul Thakur ended with great difficulty. After beating Shardul Thakur, fans are reacting fiercely on social media.
