County Cricket: Steven Croft’s weird dismissal while playing a reverse sweep

This came in the first innings of the match. Steven Croft, who was looking good for his 23, including three fours, played a reverse sweep against Essex’s spinner Shane Snater on the fourth ball of the 26th over. He pre-attempted the shot before the bowler bowled the ball. Thus, watching the batsman trying to play reverse weep, Santer changed his length. He bowled a full and fast delivery to the pads.

Thus, Croft saw the ball and changed the shot at the last moment, but the ball was too fast to change the shot. Thus, the ball took the edge of the bat and flew to Alastair Cook, who was fielding at first slip. Cook made an easy catch, and the batter got out in a totally unexpected way. The video of the dismissal was shared on social media and is getting more viral.

Lancashire got all out for 131 in 39.5 overs in their first innings. In response, Essex also had a horrible performance and were dismissed for 107 in 39.1 overs. With a lead of 24 runs, Lancashire made 73 runs and got all out in 23.4. It was a target of 97 runs for Essex to win. But the whole team got out for just 59 runs and lost the match by 38 runs.
