In a pulsating display of power-hitting prowess, Jake Fraser-McGurk, representing the Delhi Capitals (DC), captivated spectators with an explosive onslaught against Lucknow Super Giants’ (LSG) bowler Krunal Pandya in match 26 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 in Lucknow on Friday (April 12).

Jake Fraser-McGurk’s explosive onslaught against Krunal Pandya

Fraser-McGurk’s stunning feat of dispatching three consecutive sixes off Pandya’s bowling ignited an electric atmosphere, leaving fans on the edge of their seats. With Delhi requiring 68 runs to win from the final eight overs at a demanding rate of over 8 runs per over, the duo of captain Rishabh Pant and Fraser-McGurk stood firm at the crease, poised for action. Sensing an opportunity to seize the momentum, KL Rahul entrusted the ball to Krunal, a trusted spin option who had conceded 16 runs in his initial over.

First six: Over the deep-midwicket boundary

Before Pandya’s over, Fraser-McGurk had accumulated 25 runs from 23 balls and required an acceleration in scoring. Recognizing the pivotal moment, the Australian batter seized the opportunity and launched a relentless assault on Krunal’s bowling. In anticipation of Fraser-McGurk’s aggressive intent, Krunal commenced his over with a wide delivery. However, Fraser-McGurk wasted no time in unleashing his attacking instincts, dispatching the next legitimate delivery soaring over the deep-midwicket boundary, immediately applying pressure on the bowler and altering the course of the game.

Second six: Lofted shot over cover

Despite Krunal’s attempt to alter his line by targeting the off-stump channel, Fraser-McGurk remained composed and executed a stunning lofted shot over cover, sending the ball sailing into the stands for another maximum. With two consecutive sixes, Fraser-McGurk showcased his dominance and intensified the pressure on the Lucknow.

Third six: Over long-off

In a bid to wrestle back control, Krunal opted for a shorter delivery, aiming to unsettle Fraser-McGurk’s rhythm. Nevertheless, the decision backfired as Fraser-McGurk effortlessly dispatched the ball over the long-off fielder’s head for his third six in the over, leaving the crowd in awe of his batting prowess.
