The teenager, Oliver Davis joins a rare cricketing accolade as he smashes six sixes in an over and knocking a scintillating double century as well.
The under-19 National Championship, Adelaide witnessed this rare record achieved by the New South Wales Metro Captain on Monday. Offspinner Jack James bear the brunt of his assault as the young star whacked all six deliveries around the park.
Davis bagged a brilliant 207 off 115 deliveries and recorded 17 sixes in his innings against Glandore Oval, Northern Territory. Reflecting on his feat Davis commented, “After the first two sixes, I had it in my head I wanted to give it a crack and it paid off at the end.”
On his double century, the NSW Captain added, “It was amazing- in the first game of the tournament, to hit the ball so cleanly, it was a great feeling. I was hoping to put a big score on the board for the team and after setting an early base, I just took it from there and hit them pretty well.”
With this record performance, Oliver Davis joins an illustrious list of players which includes Ravi Shastri, Garfield Sobers, Herschelle Gibbs, and Yuvraj Singh.
