Batsmen and bowlers both have to play their impactful roles to bring up the success in the team. However, the roles sometimes get changed due to the tough situation as the bowlers play some useful role with the bat and/or the batsmen play some crucial role with the ball in hand.
Some responsible top-class batsmen, who even don’t ball regularly, come to bowl as the part-timers, and sometimes they played some memorable roles with the ball in hand.
Here we are talking about the top five batsmen who are holding some incredible bowling records.
Michael Dighton: The only bowler to claim six wickets on T20 cricket debut
Australian cricketer Michael Dighton, who played for the Netherlands in their non-international matches, was a good opening batsman. He made his T20 debut during the opening game of the 2006/07 KFC T20 Big Bash where he was serving for Tasmania against Queensland at Toowoomba on 1st January 2007.
On his T20 debut, the right-arm medium bowler Dighton was called up for the bowling after Queensland batsmen Clinton Perren, and Nathan Reardon set up the 100+ partnership for the fourth wicket. Dighton not only dismissed both the batsmen in the 16th over, but he also took four more wickets and finished that innings with the bowling figures of 3-0-25-6. He is still the only bowler to claim six wickets on a T20 debut.
In his entire T20 career, Dighton picked up nine wickets. Meanwhile, he also got six first-class wickets and 15 List A wickets.
