New Delhi: Even today, Yuvraj Singh’s record of 6 sixes in an over will be fresh in the mind of every fan who follows cricket. This former all-rounder of Team India had hit 6 consecutive sixes in the same over of Stuart Broad in a match against England during the 2007 T20 World Cup. There are very few players in the world who have accomplished this feat like him. But in the meantime, another player has hit 6 sixes in an over.
Now this player hit 6 sixes
Like Yuvraj Singh, Indian-origin batsman Jaskaran Malhotra, who now plays for America, hit 6 consecutive sixes in 6 balls of the same over against Papua New Guinea in the past. Every six of Jaskaran showed a glimpse of Yuvraj Singh’s batting for which he was known. Jaskaran had hit a six even leaving all the three stumps, from which it can also be estimated that how much he had faith in himself.
played a quick innings
Jaskaran, the batsman who once again reminded the cricket fans of Yuvraj Singh, played a brilliant innings in this match. Every six that came out of Jaskaran’s bat was long and sky-high. Jaskaran scored an unbeaten 173 runs in just 124 balls with the help of 16 sixes and 4 fours. The special thing is that in this innings, he scored 112 runs only with fours and sixes. Not only this, Jaskaran is also the first batsman to score a century in ODI cricket from America.

Very few batsmen have been able to hit 6 consecutive sixes
Very few batsmen have the record of hitting 6 sixes in a single over in international cricket. For the first time in 2007, the legendary South African batsman Harshal Gibbs hit 6 sixes in an over in the ODI World Cup against the Netherlands. After this, Yuvraj Singh had done this feat against England in the same year. At the same time, West Indies captain Kieron Pollard also hit 6 sixes in an over against Sri Lanka in 2021 itself.
