T20 is the format of the game that always keeps bowlers on their toes. It is always a huge challenge for them to stay economical, especially in the slog overs, when the batters are on the look for boundaries and maximums. Sometimes it becomes extremely difficult for bowlers to stop the run flow.

The same happened with Kolkata Knight Riders' Shivam Mavi in his team's game against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG). The pacer could not stop the batters from aggregating quick runs and went on to concede five sixes in his last over of the day. Mavi was taken to the cleaners by Marcus Stoinis and Jason Holder as the two batters hit five sixes off Shivam Mavi's over.

Stoinis started the carnage as he hit three consecutive sixes on the first three balls of the 19th over. He hit Mavi over deep square leg, long-on, and deep mid-wicket before handing an easy catch to Shreyas Iyer at long-on. The carnage was continued by Jason Holder as the LSG all-rounder hit two sixes off the last two balls.
