An incredible sight was witnessed by fans of cricket at the European T10 Cricket League where Romania's Pavel Florin was seen bowling in a very absurd fashion. The bowler's actions left netizens in peals of laughter but the bowler also earned respect from them as he displayed his passion to play for the sport irrespective of whether he had a proper action or not.
The Romanian bowler caught the eyes of many as the video of his bowling went viral on social media. Florin's action while bowling is just a casual throw of the ball, with his arms lazily extending over his head. Without any run-up, the bowler's deliveries posed no threat to the batsman as they took to hammer him away. Florin started off his spell with a set of wides before the batsman picked on him.
Here's a video of Florin's bowling:
After the match, the Romanian was interviewed during which he was asked how he felt about his bowling which became a sensation both during and after the match. Florin said that he knew his bowling was not beautiful but he did not care because he loved the game of cricket.
