Lockie Ferguson Unleashes UNSTOPPABLE Spell in T20 World Cup (This is RIDICULOUS!)

Lockie Ferguson shook the T20 World Cup record books on Monday with his furious fast bowling display, sending Papua New Guinea’s batting lineup fleeing. Ferguson became the first bowler in a men’s T20 World Cup to bowl four maiden overs, surprising even the most seasoned batters.

After a weather delay, New Zealand, already eliminated from the tournament, decided to field first against PNG. Ferguson roared like a lion in a cage after being let loose in the fifth over. With the opening delivery of his innings, he removed Assad Vala, the captain of PNG, and set the stage for an impressive performance. Ferguson bowled with such accuracy that the PNG batsmen had nowhere to run to. He rattled off two more straight clean sweeps. He rattled off two more consecutive maidens, bamboozling them with his pace and swing.

When Lockie Ferguson came back for his later overs, he was much more agitated. Charles Amini owas trapped lbw by an aggressive ball; a review overturned the umpire’s initial verdict. Ferguson claimed another wicket in his last over, dismissing Chad Soper for a single. Amazingly, his stats had only two leg byes as extras, which speaks something about his unwavering control.

Ferguson’s fiery spell of 4-0-4-3 earned him a well-deserved Player of the Match award.

“It was a bowler’s paradise out there,” he said after the match, a hint of satisfaction in his voice. “The swing was a bonus, and it felt good to contribute with the ball.”

While the individual brilliance of Lockie Ferguson provided a silver lining, New Zealand’s overall T20 World Cup campaign ended in disappointment. They comfortably defeated PNG by restricting them to a paltry 78 runs, but their earlier losses to Afghanistan and West Indies sealed their fate.
