Sir Garfield Sobers – Nottinghamshire, 1968
The greatest all-rounder to have played the game of cricket, Sir Garfield Sobers, made a historic achievement on August 31, 1968. Once described as a ‘five in one cricketer’ by Donald Bradman himself, Sobers became the first cricketer to smash 6 sixes in a single over in first class cricket.
He managed the feat against Malcolm Nash of Glamorgan while playing for Nottinghamshire as captain. The over consisted of five clean hits for six and one six where the ball landed in the hands of Roger Davis but was unfortunately carried over the boundary rope. Before this feat, Ted Alleston held the record of scoring most runs in an over, which was 34 runs.
Ravi Shastri – Bombay, 1985
It took 16 years for someone to match Sir Gary’s achievement and it was Indian batsman Ravi Shastri who scored six sixes in an over in a Ranji Trophy Match between Bombay and Baroda against left arm spinner Tilak Raj of Baroda in the year 1968. He also went on to score the fastest ever double century in first class cricket history in the same match.
With that, Shastri become only the second batsman in the history of cricket to smash six sixes in an over.
Herschelle Gibbs – South Africa, 2007
South African opening batsman Herschelle Gibbs was the first batsman to hit six sixes in an over in a One Day International (ODI) match. His feat came in the 2007 World Cup at St. Kitts, Basseterre, as he bludgeoned Daan van Bunge of Netherland all around the park for six sixes in one over.
Gibbs became the third batsman to it six sixes were hit in an over and the first in international cricket. With that innings, Gibbs actually went on to raise US$ 1 million for charity as there was a contest run by the sponsors – Johnny Walker.
Yuvraj Singh – India, 2007
Indian batsman, Yuvraj Singh, is known to be one of the most flambouyant cricketers in the mordern era. Yuvraj went all guns blazing when he sent Stuart Broad for six ruthless maximums in an over during the T20 World Cup in 2007 against England. A somewhat ugly spat with Andrew Flintoff in that very game spurred Yuvi on as he dipatched the England fast bowler in almost all corners of the park.
Yuvraj amazed cricketing fans worldwide with his six sixes in an over as he became the second batsman in international cricket and the fourth overall to reach this feat. India went on to win the T20 World Cup thanks to some other similarly brilliant knocks by Yuvi.
Alex Hales – Nottinghamshire, 2015
Alex Hales, who was playing for the Nottinghamshire County in the NatWest T20 Blast against Warwickshire before he was to join the Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League (IPL) as a replacement for an injured Corey Anderson, made sure he left a mark in his native country.
It was the 4th ball of the 11th over from Rankin; Hales launched him for a six, and replicated it on the last two balls as well. He got the strike on the 2nd ball of the 12th over in the next, started with a six and hit a couple more on the following deliveries. With which he completed 6 sixes in six balls.
Hales who was batting on 44 when he hit his first six, ended up on 74* when he hit his 6th six on the trot. He claimed the unique feat of hitting six sixes in 6 consecutive deliveries, but in two different overs.
