Hitting six sixes in one over is a very rare achievement and these rare feats by the batters are widely celebrated by the fans.

Former Indian great Yuvraj Singh had achieved the feat in the 2007 T20 World Cup off England’s Stuart Broad. West Indies legend Sir Gary Sobers was the first person to achieve the feat in a major match. Playing in a County Championship for Nottinghamshire in 1968, Sobers whacked Glamorgan’s Malcolm Nash for six sixes in an over. Then former India all-rounder Ravi Shastri became the first Indian to hit six sixes in an over in 1985 for Bombay against Baroda. 

Moreover, South Africa great Herschelle Gibbs was the first batter to hit six sixes in an over in international cricket. Andhra Pradesh young batter Vamshhi Krrishna is the latest batsman to join the feat.

Vamshhi achieved the feat during a match of the Col CK Nayudu Trophy. Col CK Nayudu Trophy is a national tournament for U-23 cricketers.

“6 sixes in an over alert! Vamshhi Krrishna of Andhra hit 6 sixes in an over off Railways spinner Damandeep Singh on his way to a blistering 64-ball 110 in the Col C K Nayudu Trophy in Kadapa,” BCCI posted on X (earlier known as Twitter) along with a video.
