West Indies captain Kieron Pollard smashed six sixes in an over and officially joined the club of Yuvraj Singh and Herschelle Gibbs who were the only two players to hit six sixes in an International match’s single over. Sri lanka spinner Akila Dhananjaya who picked a brilliant hat trick, went for 62 runs in the four overs he bowled with an economy of 15 runs per over.
With this feat, Kieron Pollard became the second batsman in t20 internationals and third overall. The first delivery of the over disappeared over cow corner. The second was powered straight to the sight-screen and the Caribbean captain targeted long-off on the third delivery and went over deep midwicket for the fourth. He smashed a half-tracker over long-on on the fifth delivery and went over deep midwicket again to complete the six sixes.
