Brisbane Heat fans aren’t really sure what’s going on tonight as AB de Villiers seems to have finally remembered how to bat, against tournament minnows the Melbourne Stars.
Following back-to-back record-breaking batting collapses, Brisbane appear to have remembered that the idea of cricket is to get as many runs as possible, after previously adopting a more golf-centred approach of hitting the ball as little as possible.
Even alleged captain and “big-hitter” Chris Lynn managed to get into double figures.
The Waterton Sports Chronicle spoke to Heat fan Damo (31) who said he didn’t really know what was going on.
“I don’t really know what’s going on mate.” he explained.
“I mean, yeah I’ve had a few beers, but it bloody beats me why they’ve suddenly started hitting the ball”.
Finishing the innings on 5/186, coach Darren Lehmann said it “was a bit much really.”.
