KIeron Pollard joins World Cup-winning former Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh as the only other batsman to hit 6 sixes in an over in T20I cricket.
At the international level, it was former South Africa opener Herschelle Gibbs who achieved the feat first in a World Cup 2007 match against the Netherlands.
It was a night of extremes for Akila Dananjaya as he had picked up a hat-trick in the previous over before Kieron Pollard’s 6 sixes in an over.
