Hitting 6 sixes in an over is a dream of every batsman in World cricket. This distinct feat has been achieved by very few players.

South Africa’s Herschelle Gibbs on 16th March 8 years ago hit 6 sixes in an over against Netherlands in the 2007 World Cup. In the process he became the first batsman to create history. Netherlands' leg spinner, Dan van Bunge, was the unfortunate bowler who was at the receiving end.

West Indies legend, Sir Garfield Sobers achieved in a first-class match for Nottinghamshire against Glamorgan, way back in 1968. India’s Ravi Shastri, followed Sobers by hitting the fullmonty in an over for Bombay against Baroda in the Ranji Trophy in 1985.

The distinct feat was achieved by Yuvraj Singh in 2007 inaugural T20 World Cup against England, when he hit 6 sixes in an over.
