Afghanistan left-handed batsman Hazratullah Zazai smashed six back-to-back maximums in the match between Balkh Legends and Kabul Zwanan at the Sharjah Cricket Association Stadium in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Zazai hit six sixes off Abdullah Mazari’s over en route to his blistering half-century off just 12 deliveries. His knock emulated Yuvraj Singh’s effort against England at Durban in 2007 during the inaugural ICC World Twenty20. Back then, Yuvraj smashed six sixes off a Stuart Broad over to move to a 12-ball half-century.
However, Zazai’s brilliant cameo failed to get his team over the line.
Earlier, Chris Gayle smashed 80 off 48 balls to help Balkh Legends achieve a mammoth total of 244 for six in 20 overs.
Despite Zazai’s fireworks, the Kabul Zwanan could only manage 223 for seven in the chase.
Here’s the video of Hazratullah Zazai’s six-sixes in an over:
Balkh Legends 244 for six in 20 overs (Chris Gayle 80, Dilshan Munaweera 46, Darwish Rasooli 50, Mohammad Nabi 37; Fareed Ahmad 2 for 48) beat Kabul Zwanan 223 for seven in 20 overs (Hazratullah Zazai 62, Luke Ronchi 47, Shahidullah 40; Mohammad Nabi 1 for 27, Ben Laughlin 3 for 37, Qais Ahmed 1 for 27) by 21 runs.
