    Indian-born batsman hits sixes off balls, still awaiting Yuvraj’s call

    New Delhi. Indian-origin wicket-keeper-batsman Jaskaran Malhotra, who played for the United States, made history in ODI cricket the day before. He hit six sixes off balls in the match against Papua New Guinea. With this, he became the second player in the world to hit six sixes in an over after Herschel Gibbs.

    After this innings, Jaskaran received good wishes from all over the world. But from whom he was waiting to receive congratulations. It is not done yet. In fact, he is waiting for the call of former Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh. Because Yuvraj is the first batsman to hit six sixes in the International Twenty20.

    Interestingly, both Jaskaran and Yuvraj were born in Chandigarh, Punjab and both played early cricket in Punjab. That’s why the former Indian all-rounder likes Jaskaran. “I know UV Paji (Yuvraj Singh) will call me soon,” he told ESPN Cricinfo. I look forward to his call.

    Jaskaran hit 16 sixes in his 173-run innings.
    Jaskaran did not hit 6 sixes off balls against Papua New Guinea, he became the first batsman to score a century in ODIs for the United States. He scored an unbeaten 173 off 124 balls in the match. He hit 4 fours and 16 sixes in this innings. This is the highest score of any batsman when batting at number five in ODIs.

    ‘Record comes to mind after hitting four sixes’
    Jaskaran says about his batting that it is really quite surprising. When I went to bat, I had no such plans. We lost 3 wickets for 29 runs in the first 10 overs. My first goal was the first I should stay until the end. As the innings progressed I started to believe in my batting. “In the last over (thrown by the unfortunate Gauri Toka), when I hit 4 sixes, the idea of ​​hitting 6 sixes for the first time came to my mind,” he added. I consider myself lucky to be equal to a record of 6 sixes.

    Yuvraj did this feat 14 years ago
    Herschel Gibbs of South Africa did this in ODI cricket before Jaskaran Malhotra. He did this during the 2007 ODI World Cup against the Netherlands. At the same time, former India batsman Yuvraj Singh achieved this feat in the 2007 Twenty20 World Cup. He hit six sixes in the over of England fast bowler Stuart Broad. In March this year, West Indies’ Kieran Pollard hit six sixes in one over in the Twenty20 International against Sri Lanka.
