Maharashtra skipper Ruturaj Gaikwad became the first player to smash seven consecutive sixes in an over during the second quarterfinal of the Vijay Hazare trophy at the Narendra Modi Stadium. Although three players have smashed six sixes in an over, but Gaikwad is the only one to hit seven.

Earlier Kieron Pollard became the third batsman to smash six sixes in an over after Herschelle Gibbs & Yuvraj Singh. The South African cricketer was the first to achieve this feat in ODIs against Netherlands in 2007. While Yuvraj Singh became the first international cricketer (T20I) to do so during ICC WT20 in 2007.

Talking about the match, Uttar Pradesh won the toss and invited Gaikwad-led Maharashtra to bat first. Opening the batting for Maharashtra, Gaikwad remained unbeaten at 220 in his innings in the middle. In his innings, the Pune-born cricketer smashed 10 boundaries and sixteen sixes.

 

At the end of the first innings, Maharashtra put up a decent total of 330 runs on board at the loss of five wickets. Talking about the first quarterfinal which is being held at the same venue, Karnataka invited Punjab to bat first after winning the toss. The Mandeep-led side posted 235/10 in their 50-over innings.
