Cricket World Player of the Week - Colin Munro
After being sidelined from the NZ T20 World Cup squad, Colin Munro gave the Kiwi selectors a knock on the door as he struck his maiden Big Bash League century.
New Zealand's Colin Munro has the best strike rate among batters of Test playing nations in T20 International cricket, having made 1724 runs from 65 T20 Internationals at an average in excess of 30 and a strike rate of 156.4.
His T20I strike rate is in fact better than the likes of Andre Russell, Glenn Maxwell and Evin Lewis. Munro has even struck three centuries in T20 Internationals to go along with 11 half-centuries and is a prolific six-hitter.
Munro suffered a massive disappointment recently after he was sidelined from the NZ T20 World Cup squad and conceded that his International career was probably over.
Colin Munro has now given the Kiwi selectors another knock on the door as he struck his maiden Big Bash League century.
The knock came in Perth Scorchers' clash against Adelaide Strikers in the 9th match of Big Bash League 2021-22 at the Sydney Showground Stadium. Munro made the most of the opportunities after being dropped a couple of times and denied a close lbw call from the umpire.
Munro took full toll and struck an unbeaten 114 off just 73 deliveries with the help of 8 boundaries and 6 sixes, going at a strike rate of 156.16.
He clubbed the Adelaide Strikers bowlers to all parts of the park and didn't even spare Rashid Khan, the best in the business, taking him for two consecutive sixes in the 18th over.
