London Spirit's Roelof van der Merwe put his thinking cap on to marmalize six enticingly innovative runs in The Hundred's battle against Trent Rockets.

The seasoned campaigner brought his presence of mind to the fore and earned maximum result with minimum effort. After all, cricket is not just a game of brawn but also of brains.
