There are some records that are pretty rare in the game of cricket. In the over 150-year history of this game, there are some moments that have been recorded only a few times. With so much cricket being played around the world, both at the international and domestic levels, there is something extraordinary for the fans every day.

With the introduction of the T20 format, the other two formats have also moved pretty fast. T20 cricket has also affected other formats, which is why, even in red-ball cricket, batters tend to go after the bowlers whenever there is a chance.

As a result, batters are not afraid to hit the bowler for sixes. But still, hitting six sixes in an over is a rarity. Only a few batters have achieved this landmark in cricket. As an Indian fan, no one can forget the six sixes of Yuvraj Singh, which he smashed in one over of Stuart Broad during the T20 World Cup 2024.

West Indian legend Sir Gary Sobers was the first batter to do so during a County Championship for Nottinghamshire in 1968, against Glamorgan’s Malcolm Nash. Meanwhile, Ravi Shastri became the first Indian to do so in 1985, against Baroda.

And now, another name has joined this elite list. Andhra Pradesh’s Vamshhi Krrishna has hit a 64-ball 110 against the Railways in the Col. C. K. Nayudu Trophy in Kadapa. He smashed spinner Damandeep Singh for six sixes in an over.

The BCCI shared the video of that incident on their Twitter (now X) account. The batter ended with 10 sixes and nine fours in his inning. Andhra posted a massive score of 865/9 and dismissed Railways for 378, but the game ended in a draw. Notably, Herschelle Gibbs was the first batter to hit six sixes in international cricket. West Indies’ Kieron Pollard has also done it.
