New Delhi. ‘Park at your own risk’ is a warning that people often go through. But it rarely happens that the car is parked in such a place, where the ball falls directly on it. Something similar happened in the first ODI between West Indies and Ireland in Jamaica. When the fast bowler Odin Smith, playing his debut ODI, fell on a Range Rover car parked at some distance from the boundary rope. Until the owner of the car understood something. By then the car worth crores had got a bad stain due to the ball. A video of this is also going viral.
It is seen in the video how the ball from Odin’s bat went straight across the stadium and fell on the roof of the blue Range Rover car parked there. The commentators were also stunned to see this shot of Smith. During this information came out from the commentary team that this car belonged to Sheldon Cottrell. However, it did not become clear. Well, the car belongs to anyone. But a six from Odin did stain his beauty.
Odin made his debut against Ireland in the first ODI and came out to bat at number 9. Then the 47th over of the innings was going on. In such a situation, Odin played some quick shots without wasting time. He hit a six off the third ball of the 48th over by lifting it over extra cover, which fell directly on the roof of the car. After this, he hit a six and a four in two consecutive balls of the 49th over. However, on the next ball, he was caught out in the process of playing a big shot. But by then this bowling all-rounder had done his job. West Indies scored 269 runs in 48.5 overs thanks to Odin’s 18 off 8 balls.

Smith rocked the ball with the bat
In response, Ireland’s team got out after scoring 245 runs in 49.1 overs. In this way West Indies won the first ODI by 24 runs. Odin made his mark in the bowling and took 2 wickets for 26 runs in 5.1 overs. Odin made his T20 debut for West Indies in 2018 itself. But he had to wait for 3 years to play the first ODI. But this wait proved to be good for this player. Because with both ball and bat, Odin played an important role in his team’s victory.
