Whenever we come across the sentence ”Six Sixes in An Over”, the first person that comes to the mind of the fans is Yuvraj Singh. After Yuvraj Singh, many batsmen achieved the feat, but the aura of Yuvraj’s six sixes remains on the top. Recently, yet another left-handed batsman Leo Carter achieved the feat in the ongoing super smash tournament. Following the feat, Yuvraj Singh welcomed the youngster to the ”6 Sixes’ club”.
Leo Carter, batting for the Canterbury Knights, pulled off the feat in the 16th over of the match, with left-arm orthodox bowler Anton Devcich on the receiving end of the punishment. By doing so, Leo Carter became only the seventh male cricketer to hit six sixes in an over during a T20 match in the Super Smash tournament.
Please sign your Jersey to Devcich – Yuvraj Singh
Meanwhile, Yuvraj Singh posted a picture of famous cartoon characters ‘Tom and Jerry’ and advised Carter to sign his jersey and hand it over to Anton Devich (the bowler who got hit by Carter for six 6s). He also complimented the youngster saying that was an epic hitting under pressure.
“Welcome Leo Carter to the six sixes club! That was some epic hitting, now please sign your jersey and give it to Devcich as a mark of respect,” Yuvraj tweeted.
