Scarborough, England: Lancashire says its allrounder Jordan Clark has become only the fifth professional player to hit six sixes in one over, achieving the feat in a second XI match against Yorkshire.
Clark joins an illustrious list that contains former West Indies allrounder Garfield Sobers (1968), ex-India allrounder Ravi Shastri (1985), South Africa batsman Herschelle Gibbs and India allrounder Yuvraj Singh (both 2007).
The English county says all of Clark's sixes on Wednesday were slog-sweeps over the midwicket boundary from the bowling of left-arm spinner Gurman Randhawa.
Clark tells the BBC that "I just remember feeling a bit of pressure on the last ball and thinking, 'I have got to have a crack.'"
