That nixon guy got a huge 6 off a reverse sweep.

a lot of great batsmen are just useless with the reverse sweep.

I like the way Ravi Shastri says "rewerz sveep" ... need a couple of brass ones to execute the unsightly shot.

Offcourse Andy Flower. I remember watching legends of cricket or something like that and Andy playing the reverz sweep with ease but when I started playing the shot I was shocked how he could play this shot so comfortably!!

Who could forget Mike Gattings reverse sweep against Australia in 1987 World Cup. he got out playing that shot when England were on their way to win the cup.

Mike Gatting's impetuous reverse sweep cost England dear

Quote:
Moment
Border was no mug with the ball - the very next season he was to take 7-46 against the West Indies in the Sydney Test. Gatting was not known for his risk-taking daredevilry and conventional wisdom had it that, with his team comfortably placed, the captain would face his opposite number's first ball with some circumspection. Yet as the ball pitched around his off stump, something snapped in Gatting and he got down on his haunches - a not inconsiderable feat - and effected a reverse-sweep. Except it didn't quite come off; the ball hit his shoulder and flew up and behind to Greg Dyer, who was so surprised he almost dropped it. Magic for Australia, Tragic for England.

paol nixon?? you calll them reverse sweep?? whoever thinks these are reverse sweeps, are out of their mind..

whenever he attempted to make a reverse sweep, he became a right handed batsmen(hes a left handed). Didnt you guys see that in the WC?? even commentators were laughing at it..they wanted the umpire to give him a warning.

Profile-

The elder of two Test-playing brothers, Andy Flower was for a long time Zimbabwe's only batsman of true Test quality in all conditions. For a period of about two years from the start of 2000 he was so phenomenally consistent that he has no rival as the best player in Zimbabwe's history. His wicketkeeping, though, was sometimes less dependable, and probably suffered from the added strain of having to lead the side. He had two stints as captain, leading Zimbabwe to their first Test victory against Pakistan in 1994-95, and then becoming the first Zimbabwean to lead a Test tour of England, in 2000. An assured player of fast bowling since his early days as an opener, Flower matured into one of the best players of spin in the world, and on the Indian tour early in 2001 he made 540 runs for twice out. By then, he had gone from underrated over-achiever to a recognised star, with a spell at No. 1 in the international ratings. Opposing bowlers targeted him accordingly and after a phenomenal Test against South Africa at Harare, when he made 142 and 199 not out, he suffered a rare slump. Off the field, Flower is a keen student of Zimbabwe's history, of which he is now a notable part. He announced his retirement from international cricket after a turbulent 2003 World Cup, which started with an unprecedented protest by Flower, and his equally brave team-mate Henry Olonga, about what they called the "death of democracy" in Zimbabwe. Flower played for Essex from 2002 until 2006, and enjoyed a season in South Australia in 2003-04. He was joined at Essex by his brother Grant in 2005, and they became the first brothers to score first-class centuries for the county in the same innings against Lancashire that year. But injury ruled him out of the 2007 season, and when the offer came to become England's assistant coach, he retired and took it.
