How to play the ‘Nat­meg’

Sciver’s trick shot

The Sunday Telegraph - Sport - - Sport -

“It was a lit­tle bit ac­ci­den­tal. It’s more of a get-out-of-jail shot. You get into a ter­ri­ble po­si­tion, and can’t hit it down the ground, so you hit it through the legs. It wasn’t one of the shots I prac­tised for straight balls; it just kind of came about. But if the ball is in the right place, then nine times out of 10, I can hit it. The name came about on Twit­ter – Isa [Guha, for­mer England bowler] told me they put it out there, and some­one came back with ‘Nat­meg’. It’s pretty cool hav­ing a shot named af­ter

you.”
