Watch: 15-year-old Indian batter Krishna Pandey hits 6 sixes in 1 over during Pondicherry T10 league

Joins the prestigious group of cricket greats.

With the Pondicherry T10 league commencing last month, local boys have been given a golden chance to depict their talent and get noticed in the eyes of the selectors. In the match between the Royals and Patriots on June 4, 15-year-old Indian Batter Krishna Pandey smashed six sixes in an over. He joined Ravi Shastri, Yuvraj Singh, Herschelle Gibbs, and Kieron Pollard– the elite list of players who too have achieved this feat.

The Royals’ batter displayed an astonishing innings of his in the second innings with his team chasing a massive total of 158. When Pandey walked into the bat, his team had already lost three wickets but he single-handedly changed the course of the game and put his team on the course to victory.

The Over which created the record


In the sixth over of the chase, Patriots bowler Nitesh Thakur faced the fury of Pandey’s brilliance as he displayed a wide display of shots to smash five sixes off the first five balls. Thakur then in confusion bowled a wide before the sixth bowl which eventually went for another six to complete Pandey’s incredible batting effort that saw his team gain 37 runs off the over.

The 15-year-old ended up playing a sensational knock of 83 in just 19 balls at the Cricket Association Puducherry Siechem Ground in Puducherry. Pandey’s knock included a total of 12 sixes and two fours. He batted at a phenomenal strike rate of 436.80. Despite Pandey’s brilliance, the Patriots ended up on the losing side as the Royals registered a slender four-run victory. However, despite the defeat, they are still on top of the table with an impressive tally of eight wins in 12 matches so far.
