Video- 6,6,6,6,6,6,6… Ruturaj Gaikwad Hits 42 Runs In An Over To Make World Record

Only nine batters—including some of the best cricketers ever, such Sir Garfield Sobers and Yuvraj Singh—have ever managed to knock six sixes in a single over in the sport’s long history, which spans more than a century. However, on Monday, Ruturaj Gaikwad, a teenage player from India, went one step farther and accomplished an unprecedented accomplishment in cricket. Gaikwad hit seven sixes in a single over while playing Uttar Pradesh in the Vijay Hazare Trophy quarterfinal on his way to a record-breaking 220* runs. You did read that right, Gaikwad set a world record with 43 runs scored in one over.

He blasted those sixes against Shiva Singh in the 49th over of the game. At the Narendra Modi Stadium, B Ground in Ahmedabad, the bowler gave up a no ball on the fifth delivery of the over, which was also sailed over the boundary ropes.

In his spectacular unbeaten knock of 220 runs in 159 balls, peppered with 10 boundaries and 16 maximums, Gaikwad carried his bat throughout.

With the record achievement, Ruturaj joined a distinguished group of cricketers, including Sir Garfield Sobers, Ravi Shastri, Herschelle Gibbs, Yuvraj Singh, Ross Whiteley, Haztratullah Zazai, Leo Carter, Kieron Pollard, and Thisara Perera, who have hit six consecutive sixes in an over.

Here’s the video of the amazing over:

Speaking of the game, in the second quarterfinal encounter of the competition, Maharashtra batted first and amassed 330 for five thanks to Gaikwad’s magnificent knock. The best bowler for the Uttar Pradesh team was Kartik Tyagi, who claimed three of the five wickets that were lost.
