Delhi Bulls openers Evin Lewis and Rahmanullah Gurbaz came to open the batting for their team, keeping in mind the target of 88 runs set by the Maratha Arabians in Match 5 of the 2021 Abu Dhabi T10 League. Losing Gurbaz for only 4 runs, Delhi Bulls seemed to look in a spot of bother.
However, Lewis stepped on the gas and played a scintillating and quickfire knock of 55 runs only from 16 deliveries. His knock was not only filled with composure but also with lots of power hitting. He just ripped apart the bowling of the Arabians simply by hitting some massive sixes all over the park.
In total. he hit 7 maximums which travels a huge distance without any kind of tension. He was hitting those maximums with absolute ease and making the lives of all the Arabians bowlers absolutely miserable. Along with Bopara who from the other end played a steady hand of 28 runs, they reminded the opponent quickies that the match can be won from any scenario.
Evin Lewis not only played a gem of an innings but a lot of youngsters could learn how to play big shots without any kind of unnecessary risk being taken from the batsman’s point of view. In an interview, Lewis told the experts that he not only enjoyed batting out there with Bopara but also kept in mind the asking rate and how soon can they finish the match.
In one word, Lewis’ magical innings did reflect his character as a batsman who is aggressive but yet steady with his scintillating display of a wide variety of strokes. It also goes to show that he’s going to be super crucial to the side’s chances for the rest of the tournament in UAE.
