Andhra’s opening batsman, Vamshhi Krrishna, etched his name into the annals of cricket history with a stunning display of power-hitting in the Colonel CK Nayudu Trophy clash against Railways at the YS Raja Reddy ACP Cricket Stadium in Kadapa.

Krrishna’s heroics saw him become only the fourth Indian cricketer to achieve the remarkable feat of smashing six consecutive sixes in an over. Joining the esteemed company of Ravi Shastri, Yuvraj Singh, and Ruturaj Gaikwad, Krrishna’s onslaught came against the wrist spin of Damandeep Singh.

In a breathtaking display of aggression, Krrishna’s innings was punctuated by ten towering sixes and nine elegant boundaries, culminating in a blistering knock of 110 runs from just 64 deliveries. His assault propelled Andhra to a commanding total of 378 runs in their first innings.

Demonstrating his wide repertoire of shots, Krrishna’s onslaught began with a disdainful slog-sweep over deep square leg, followed by a towering hit straight down the ground. With unwavering confidence and precision, he dispatched the next four deliveries to all corners of the field, completing a historic achievement that will be etched in the memories of cricket enthusiasts for years to come.

This remarkable feat draws comparisons to the legendary West Indian all-rounder, Sir Garfield Sobers, who was the first player in cricket history to achieve the milestone of six consecutive sixes in an over. Sobers’ iconic display came during a County Championship match in 1968 while representing Nottinghamshire against Glamorgan’s Malcolm Nash.

Krrishna’s explosive innings not only showcased his immense talent but also underscored the ever-evolving nature of the sport, where boundaries are constantly pushed, and records are meant to be broken. As the cricketing world reverberates with the echoes of his extraordinary achievement, Krrishna’s name will forever be synonymous with brilliance and audacity on the cricket field.
