Gaikwad smashes seven sixes in 43-run over

0 44

Maharashtra captain and opener Ruturaj Gaikwad hit seven sixes in an over – a first in List A cricket – against Uttar Pradesh in a Vijay Hazare Trophy quarter-final in Ahmedabad.

It was the penultimate over of the Maharashtra innings, which started with the scoreboard reading 272 for 5, and ended with Maharashtra on 315 for 5. They finished on 330 for 5. The total of 43 runs from the over also made it to the record books, matching the combined effort of Brett Hampton and Joe Carter, off Willem Ludick, for Northern Districts against Central Districts in a Ford Trophy game in 2018.

Gaikwad finished on 220 not out off 159 balls, with ten fours and 16 sixes. And the unfortunate Shiva finished with 0 for 88 from nine overs.

It was pretty much a one-man show from Gaikwad, with the rest of the Maharashtra batters aggregating 96 runs from 142 balls.
