It’s hardly Six Days In The Year And We Have Got 6 Sixes In An Over

If you were still stuck with Yuvraj Singh’s 6 sixes in an over then 2020 has bought a new name to the list. The batsmen, in this case, is New Zealand’s Leo Carter who switched to merciless mode at Hagley Oval on Sunday.

The 25-year-old left-hand batsmanĀ Carter has become the first New Zealander to achieve the feat. The historic feat came during the match between Canterbury Kings and Knights which was played as a part of New Zealand’s domestic T20 Tournament Super Smash.

Chasing a target of 220 in their 20 Overs Kings needed 64 from 30 balls with seven wickets in hand when Carter hammered left-arm spinner Anton Devcich for 36 runs in the 16th over. On the back of 6 sixes, carter scored unbeaten 70 of 29 balls handing his team victory with 7 balls to spare.
