New Delhi: No one can forget the 6 sixes of former Team India cricketer Yuvraj Singh on the cricket field. He did this feat against England in the T20 World Cup held in 2007. Apart from Yuvraj, there are many other cricketers who have done this work. More recently, another player has hit 6 sixes in the same over.
Great feat of Ireland player
Now an Irish player has hit 6 sixes in a single over in a local tournament. The name of this batsman is John Glass. The amazing thing is that Glass is only 21 years old. Northern Irish club Ballymena needed 35 runs in the last over against Craigagho in the final match of Lagan Valley Steels T20 Trophy. Then Glass hit 6 sixes in a row and made his team the champion by hitting 6 sixes.
John Glass (87*) hit six sixes of the last over of the match as Ballymena won the LVS T20 Trophy final against Cregagh in Belfast by three wkts on Thursday. Ballymena needed 35 off the final over when Glass did the near impossible.
Cregagh 147-7 (20 ov)

Glass’s elder brother also did wonders
Before John hit 6 sixes in this match, his elder brother Sam Glass also did a great job. Sam took a hat-trick in his bowling. In this match, he took 3 wickets giving just 5 runs. In this match, the awesomeness of both the brothers made their team the winner.
