Seven cricketers who have hit six sixes in an over

Internet Desk: Cricket has changed very much from where it was 10 to 20 years ago. Especially after T20 cricket was introduced. Now, one has to score runs as quick as possible sometimes in test crickets too. But, hitting every ball into the stands in an over is still very rare.  There are only seven batsmen who did that in any form of cricket.

Sir Garfield Sobers


Sir Sobers was one of the greatest all-rounders of all time. He hit six sixes on August 31, 1968 in Nottinghamshire while playing as a captain of the home side. Malcolm Nash of Glamorgan was the bowler. Among them five was a clean hit but one of them landed in the hands of Roger Davis but unfortunately carried over the rope. Earlier Ted Alleston scored 34 runs in an over.

Ravi Shastri


In 1985 Ravi Shastri scored six sixes in a Ranji match between Bombay and Baroda.  Baroda left arm spinner Tilak Raj bowled the over. He also scored fastest ever double ton in the first class cricket history.
