6 Sixes In 1 Over: Andhra Youngster Makes History

6 Sixes In 1 Over: Andhra Youngster Makes History

In cricket, numerous achievements are widely celebrated, and hitting six sixes in an over is among them. Who can forget Yuvraj Singh's iconic feat at the 2007 T20 World Cup against England's Stuart Broad?

The legendary Sir Gary Sobers was the first to accomplish this in a major match, achieving it while playing for Nottinghamshire against Glamorgan in a County Championship match in 1968. Ravi Shastri later became the first Indian to achieve this milestone in 1985, playing for Bombay against Baroda.

Herschelle Gibbs was the first to achieve this feat in international cricket. Now, Vamshhi Krrishna from Andhra Pradesh has joined this illustrious list, achieving the feat in a Col CK Nayudu Trophy match—a national tournament for U-23 cricketers.

The BCCI highlighted Krrishna's achievement, stating, "6 sixes in an over alert! Vamshhi Krrishna of Andhra hit 6 sixes in an over off Railways spinner Damandeep Singh on his way to a blistering 64-ball 110 in the Col C K Nayudu Trophy in Kadapa," accompanied by a video.

Recently, following the announcement by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) that R Ashwin, who had left to be with his ill mother, rejoined the team on Day 4 of the third Test against England, former head coach Ravi Shastri revealed that the board arranged a chartered plane for the player.

Shastri praised the BCCI and secretary Jay Shah for their empathetic gesture towards Ashwin, expressing that such actions make the players feel valued.
