Kieron Pollard on Thursday became only the third cricketer in the history of international cricket to hit six sixes in an over, joining Herschelle Gibbs and Yuvraj Singh, who did it back in 2007. After spinner Akila Dananjaya had taken a hat-trick to rock West Indies chase during the first T20I in Antigua, Pollard hammered 36 runs off his next over to cut short Dananjayas joy.
Pollards exploits were lauded by the entire cricket fraternity, including the two people who know what the experience feels like, Gibbs and Yuvraj. The two former cricketers took to Twitter to congratulate the West Indies all-rounder on his incredible achievement.
Gibbs, who became the first batsman to hit six sixes in an over â in an ODI against Netherlands during the 2007 World Cup, tweeted: March a popular month for hitting 6x6s. 16/3/2007 and 3/3/2021 congrats @KieronPollard55.
