The clattering of timber is music to the ears of a paceman. Surrey’s Conor McKerr orchestrated the melody in The Royal London One-Day Cup’s clash against Durham as he bowled Sean Dickson neck and crop. The right-hander heaved a good-length slanter only to miss the ball altogether and have his furniture tormented. The off- and the leg-pole lay horizontally on opposite tips of the striker’s end. The speedster’s celebration was muted, though, as if cringing at the agricultural swipe.
Is there a much better sight for a fast bowler than this? 😍#RLC21 // @surreycricket pic.twitter.com/lN4rlFe6Js
