He must have thought that Botha was just going to bowl his stock delivery. In the end, he got something resembling a yorker.

Not going to reverse-sweep that anytime soon...

If you look at the percentages, the risk involved in the shot is not worth four runs when your side is 3 wickets down.

Bad..bad call from MJ. They must put away the paddle and the reverse sweep. If you play the percentages then you know there is a massive gap straight down the ground that can bring the same result with less risk.

Even if the shot came off I would be like, "Why is he playing the reverse sweep?"
