Kieron Pollard Smashes 6 Sixes in an over

The West Indies captain joined South Africa’s Herschelle Gibbs (March 2007, ICC Men’s ODI World Cup against the Netherlands) and India’s Yuvraj Singh (September 2007, ICC Men’s World T20 against England) as the only men to have achieved the feat in international cricket when he teed off against Sri Lanka in the first T20I on Thursday.

West Indies vs Sri Lanka

Pollard who is the captain of the West Indies side won the toss and opt to bowl first. Sri Lanka did not put up a convincing total for the hosts as they ended up with just 131 runs on the scorecard.

Chasing the total, West Indies completed the run chase in just the 14th over. Lanka bowler Akila Dananjaya took a hat-trick in this very match by dismissing Evin Lewis, Chris Gayle, and Nicholas Pooran. But Pollard then smacked the same bowler to huge sixes at the end of power play.

Pollard’s view on achieving this feat

“I felt I could hit six sixes after the third one,” said 33-year-old Pollard according to AFP.

“Once I had five sixes I knew I had the bowler on the back foot. He was going around the wicket and it was difficult for him. I just told myself: ‘Go for it’.”

Here’s the full list of batsmen who have hit six sixes in one over of top level cricket.
