Only three players have achieved the rare feat of hitting six sixes in an over on the international scene. Which batsman’s was the best?
In 2007, Herschelle Gibbs became the first batsman in the history of international cricket to slam six sixes in an over.
In a World Cup match against the Netherlands in the West Indies, Gibbs smashed leg-spinner Daan van Bunge to all corners of the park, achieving the rare feat for the first time.
In the same year, Yuvraj Singh took a liking to England bowler Stuart Broad on his way to hitting the fastest half-century in T20I cricket.
Batting powerhouse Kieron Pollard was in demolition mode in the first T20I against Sri Lanka in Antigua on Thursday. Chasing a moderate total of 132, the hosts were reeling at 62-4 as spinner Akila Dananjaya claimed a memorable hat-trick, including the scalp of Chris Gayle for a duck. Dananjaya’s joy didn’t last long, as Windies skipper Pollard arrived at the crease and took the match away from Sri Lanka in the blink of an eye.
