Jordan Clark smashes 6 sixes in 1 over

Scarborough (England), Apr 26: Lancashire County Cricket Club's Jordan Clark has become the fifth batsman in the history of the game to hit six sixes in an over.

The county team reported on its website on Wednesday (April 24) that Clark smashed Yorkshire's left-arm spinner Gurman Randhawa for six sixes in an over during Roses Challenge match (second XI game) in Scarborough.

"All six hits were slog/sweeps over the mid-wicket boundary with the majority clearing the ropes by some distance," the website report added.

"I hit the first few pretty well, had a chat to Liam (Livingstone, batting at the non-strikers end), and I just carried on really," the right-handed Clark told BBC Sport.

"I just remember feeling a bit of pressure on the last ball and thinking 'I have got to have a crack'."

He is the first Lancashire and England cricketer to achieve the feat and joins former West Indian all-rounder Sir Garfield Sobers, India's Ravi Shastri, South African Herschelle Gibbs and Yuvraj Singh of India in the elite club.
