Putting six in an over in cricket is not an easy task. Although every batsman dreams to achieve this special achievement in his career, but till now only a few players have been able to do this feat. Be it international cricket or club cricket. Batsmen have been able to do such a feat only on very few occasions in cricket.
But if someone tells you that a team needs 35 runs to win in the last over and the batsman hit six sixes to give victory to his team. Then you definitely won’t believe it. But it has happened. In a T20 match, the team needed 35 runs in the last over to win, then 21-year-old John Glass of Ireland gave his team victory by hitting six consecutive sixes. The video of his amazing batting is becoming fiercely viral on social media.

Actually, this feat was seen in the final match of Lagan Valley Steels T20 Trophy. When Northern Irish club Ballymena had to score 35 runs in the last over to win. In such a situation, John Glass gave his team a memorable victory by hitting 6 sixes in the last six balls. Glass scored an unbeaten 87 and was also successful in winning the man of the match title.
