    The bowler was spinner Anton Devcich.

    ‘I just stepped across and swung as hard as I could,” Carter told Sky.

    ‘I’m not so sure I got many off the middle, but pretty short boundary there, so they just carried over, I was pretty thankful for that.

    ‘We needed a big over at that time – I was lucky enough to get a few over there.’

    Canterbury won the match by seven wickets with as many deliveries to spare.

    Former South Africa Under-19 batsman Chad Bowes also played for Canterbury.

    Former Proteas batsman Herschelle Gibbs hit Netheralands leg-spinner Daan van Bunge for six successive sixes during the 2007 World Cup.

    Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh struck England fast bowler Stuart Broad for six consecutive sixes during the 2007 World Twenty20 (since renamed the T20 World Cup).

    Worcestershire’s Ross Whiteley hit six sixes in one over in a T20 fixture against Yorkshire in 2017.

    The West Indies Garfield Sobers and India’s Ravi Shastri achieved the feat in first-class cricket, in 1968 and 1984, respectively.
