What is the agricultural shot in cricket?

What is the agricultural shot in cricket? The agricultural shot is the wild slog of the ball, usually over midwicket or over square leg. It is executed by a swing of the bat across the line of the ball played in a crude manner, and without much technique. This may also sometimes result in some earth being scooped out when the bat hits the ground. It is so called because a farmer might execute such a shot in a scything motion, and this was the sort of country cricket played earlier.
