VIDEO: Mitchell Johnson gets hit out of the stadium: Mitchell Johnson has been one of the finest fast bowlers produced by Australia after the likes of Brett Lee, Jason Gillespie, Glenn McGrath. In his international career, he picked up a total of 590 wickets.
Can you imagine a situation where a batsman hits the ball out of the park while facing a bowler like Mitchell Johnson? Well, this has happened. In his first ODI match, Mitchell Johnson got hit for a maximum that landed on the roof of the stadium by New Zealand batsman Jacob Oram.
New Zealand needed 88 off 53 balls when Oram hit this six off Johnson in the 42nd over. The bowler, Mitchell Johnson was completely stunned. It was pitched short of length and Oram timed the shot using the pace that it travelled the distance.
Adam Gilchrist and Ricky Ponting had no clue about what just happened.
From there on, Johnson matured as a bowler and now today after he has retired, youngsters take inspiration from him. In world cricket today, he is regarded as one of the best pacers. He might not have the ability to swing the ball but his pace and accurate line, length is deadly for any batsman.
