    Hanif Mohammad invented the reverse-sweep

    I was reading his profile and in it, Scyld Berry claims that 'The Little Master' was "probably the originator of the reverse-sweep". This explains why we see so many Pakistani batsmen playing this shot and playing it so well!

    It would be fun knowing who were the originators of the other shots we see modern-cricketers playing so if you have any such information, feel free to share.

    @Big Mac Scoop shot has been very popular in street cricket in Pakistan since the 90s. You are basically forced to play it.
