(Video) Stoneman deposits a freebie high and handsome over square leg

Surrey’s Mark Stoneman plucked a leaf out of Quinton de Kock’s book as he picked a lifter over deep square leg with nothing but a short-arm swivel. The flawless execution was possible thanks to an ever-so-slight transfer of weight onto the backfoot and the awareness to help the ball on its way rather than relying on brute force. The left-hander struck nine fours and two sixes in his 117 against Durham in the Royal London One-Day Cup.
