Written by : Info Box Team

Hazratullah Zazai representing Kabul Zwanan created sensation by hitting 6 sixes in an over against Balkh Legends in the Afghanistan Premier League T20 at Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Sunday.

Zazai, with his extraordinary batting prowess, joined the elite list of Garry Sobers, Ravi Shastri, Herschelle Gibbs and Yuvraj Singh, who have previously achieved this rare feat in different formats of the game.

The left-handed flamboyant batsman smashed 6 sixes in the innings 4th over by Abdullah Mazari. The bowler conceded 37 runs in total (with one wide).

Zazai with his whirlwind innings reached to the half-century mark in just 12 balls, equalling the fastest fifty record jointly held by Yuvraj Singh and Chris Gayle in T20 cricket.

The 20-year old player scored 4 boundaries and 7 sixes in his blistering knock of 62 runs from just 17 balls. Unfortunately, Zazai's team ended up in losing side as they fell short by 21 runs, chasing 244 runs.
