Misbah smashes 6 sixes in 6 balls in Hong Kong T20 Blitz
Pakistan Test skipper Misbah-ul-Haq made history by becoming first Pakistani cricketer to hit six sixes in six balls.
The 42-year-old hit six consecutive sixes in the Hong Kong T20 blitz. Misbah who had previously earned the moniker of ‘tuk tuk’ let his bat do the talking to etch his name in the history books.
Misbah hit right arm seamer Imran Arif for two sixes in the last two deliveries of the 19th over and then slammed left-armer Ashley Caddy for four consecutive sixes in the last over of the innings.
The last seven balls that @captainmisbahpk faced – 6, 6, 6, 6, 6, 6, 4.
