When I think of six sixes, I think of Yuvraj Singh’s T20 match in 2007 when he smashed six sixes in one over. There are few such international instances and the recent one is of Australia’s teenage sensation, Oliver Davies. Oliver scripted history on December 3. The Australian teen hit six sixes in an over at the U-19 National Championships in Adelaide.
Davies smashed 17 sixes in total against a hapless Northern Territory attack at the Glandore Oval for NSW Metro and finished with 207 off just 115 balls. Sydney-based teenager Oliver Davies’s remarkable knock made the Twitterati praise him non-stop. The player has managed to enter a rare club of hitting six sixes in an over.
Not just he reminded the audience about the brilliant game played by Yuvraj, he also scored a double century. Davies also became the 1st batsman in the competition to score a double century. Watch the applause-worthy shots from the bat of this young Australian player below:
After the brilliant performance, Davies said:
“I like to strike the ball pretty hard from ball one and just take it as it goes from there. I like to get on top of the spinners as early as possible and put them on the back foot and take the game back into my hands.”
Fans took to Twitter to congratulate the player. See what they had to say below:
