Tristan Stubbs reveals the secret behind his power-hitting

In a post-match revelation, the 23-year-old sensation unveiled the secret behind his power-hitting, attributing it to his background in hockey. Stubbs explained how playing hockey in his formative years had a significant influence on his batting technique. He emphasized the similarity in the hand movements required for wielding a hockey stick and executing powerful shots in cricket.

“I think initially you get the basics from hockey and I practiced them a lot because you know you got to do it, it just takes bravery for it to connect and play through. The way I turn the hands for the spin and seam is like I’m holding a hockey stick, so it must come from there. Both sweeps actually, getting down low I definitely think comes from hockey,” said Stubbs in a video shared by the IPL.

Playoffs in sight for Delhi Capitals

Following their 20-run victory over RR, DC have climbed to the fifth position on the points table, securing six wins from 12 matches and accumulating 12 points. Led by skipper Rishabh Pant, the Capitals are well-positioned to clinch a spot in the playoffs and will be determined to secure victories in their remaining fixtures against RCB and LSG.
