Eoin Morgan does something mental with his cricket bat

We saw this plastered across Jrod’s Balls yesterday. It’s Eoin Morgan doing something quite ridiculous in the name of batting.

It’s pretty impressive, but is he really that good?

He can play that shot well enough in those circumstances, but how well would he bat with his upper arms tied to his chest with electrical wire so he could only move from the elbow down, kind of like a tyrannosaurus rex?

How well would he bat then, eh?


Mike Gatting wasn't receiving the King Cricket email when he dropped that ludicrously easy chance against India in 1993.


Why risk it when it's so easy to sign up?


  1. Given that the result of all this bat twirling was that he hit a leg-side delivery somewhere behind square on the leg side, which is the outcome of most normal sweep shots, I think the greater question is why?

    Was he just showing off, the great show-off?

  2. If He was to bat like A TRex he’d probably be a bit busy biting the head off the square leg umpire to play that shot. though the ball would be called a wide and the fact a multi Ton dinosaur would be rampaging around the outfield would probably cause the match to be abandoned.

  3. You’ll need to cut and paste that link – the bracket in the file name seems to confound KCs system.

    Worth the effort though.

  4. Morgan was “just a bit good” on Monday. Have rather too many photographs for my liking of him playing cheeky little dinks and sweeps!

  5. I have a firm dislike of batsmen who show all of their teeth between deliveries and take the piss with reverse everythings.

  6. To be fair to Eoin, he scored 161 off 136 balls in that game, and his strike rate was 250 on balls that he played the reverse sweep.
