Video: Right-handed Warner stuns Ashwin

With the rise of T20 cricket, the game has witnessed some very outrageous shots being played by the batsmen. Audacious shots like the scoop and sweeps have become a common sight. The switch hit is one of them. The switch hit is a shot in which the batsman changes his batting stances from left-handed to right-handed as the bowler is about to release the ball.

The shot has become a common sight in cricket since Kevin Pietersen pioneered the tactic in 2008, and explosive Australian batsman David Warner is one of its finest exponents.

Here we are showing you some instances when Warner left everyone speechless with his mind-boggling  switch hit.

The first instance is when he hit Indian spinner Ravi Ashwin during a Twenty20 in Sydney in 2012.

Bowling only the third over of the innings, Ashwin bowled a ball which was going down the leg side. The ball was destined for a wide but what followed left everyone speechless. Warner switched his guard completely as R Ashwin was releasing the delivery, and  muscled an enormous six with a right-handed grip over what would have been the deep extra cover. The ball landed several rows back and covered an astonishing distance of 100 meters.

The left-handed batsman has played this audacious shot on a number of occasions. He has made even the best bowlers look silly with this shot.
