Watch: Daryl Mitchell's Six Lands Straight Into A Fan's Beer During England vs New Zealand 2nd Test
ENG vs NZ: New Zealand all-rounder Daryl Mitchell hit Jack Leach for a six over long-on, which landed straight into a fan's glass of beer on Day 1 of the second Test against England.
After scoring a hundred in the first Test at Lord's, New Zealand all-rounder Daryl Mitchell continued his rich vein of form in the ongoing second Test against England. Mitchell hit eight boundaries and two sixes, and was batting unbeaten on 81 before stumps were called at Trent Bridge on Day 1. Apart from entertaining the crowd with his brilliant stroke play, Mitchell also hit Jack Leach for a six over long-on, which landed straight into a fan's glass of beer. The incident happened in the 56th over of New Zealand's first innings.
The video was shared by England Cricket Board on their official Instagram handle.
"New drink please," ECB had captioned the post.
In the video, England pacer Matthew Potts, who was deployed at long-on, can be seen gesturing to his teammates that the ball landed in someone's beer.
England cricket team's supporter group the Barmy Army later revealed that New Zealand had provided the fan, named Susan, with a replacement pint.
After the close of the day's play, Mitchell went on to greet Susan and apologised for the same.
New Zealand were in command of the proceedings after being put into bat first.
Just like the second innings of the first Test, Mitchell and Tom Blundell came to New Zealand's rescue on Day 1, adding an unbeaten 149 runs for the fifth wicket.
New Zealand were 318 for four at stumps with Mitchell and Blundell batting on 81 and 67, respectively.
