Singapore star credits hockey for cricket success

Singapore have gotten off to a dream start in the ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier after triumphing in two games in a row. Their latest five-wicket victory over Bermuda was set up by a match-winning knock of 72 from 41 deliveries by Navin Param.

The young right-handed batsman later claimed to have transferred his hockey skills to the cricketing arena with great success. 

The 24-year-old said he learned nifty wristwork in hockey which allows him to play unorthodox shots with utmost precision in cricket.

“It’s fortunate that I actually started off playing hockey first before I played cricket. So growing up, I kind of use what I’ve learned in hockey, the strong wrists and manipulation of the ball when you play hockey. I just transfer those skills over to cricket which makes my technique not as orthodox,” Param stated after his enterprising innings.
