WATCH: Six sixes in an over! Andhra’s Vamshhi Krrishna smashes thunderous maximums to join elite list


A display of brilliance on the cricket field that would be etched in the annals of history unfolded during the CK Nayudu Trophy 2024, as Andhra’s cricket sensation Vamshhi Krrishna achieved a remarkable feat that most cricketers can only dream of. The strikingly powerful batsman made the extraordinary become reality by smashing six sixes in a single over, proving the age of power-hitting is reaching new heights.

This prodigious event took place at the YS Raja Reddy ACP Cricket Stadium in Kadapa, where Krrishna faced off against Railways’ spinner Damandeep Singh. The Guntur-born batsman displayed a performance of sheer dominance as he propelled the ball over the boundary six times consecutively, leaving the onlookers in awe and the record books in need of an update.

Krrishna joins an elite club of Indian batters who have achieved this feat, with legends like Ravi Shastri, Yuvraj Singh, and Ruturaj Gaikwad paving the way before him. He accomplished this incredible batting spree in the first innings of the match, taking on Damandeep’s delivery in the 10th over. The first ball was dispatched with a powerful slog sweep over deep mid-wicket, which set the tone for the fireworks that followed.

As the over progressed, Krrishna seemed unstoppable. The second six came off a ball pitched full and outside the crease, as he skillfully went down the ground to send it soaring. The consecutive deliveries only resulted in Damandeep facing more punishment; a fuller ball was smashed over cow corner, another that targeted the pads was blasted towards deep mid-wicket, and a slog-sweep followed – dispatched towards square leg with the ease of a master at work.

The sequence of maximums concluded with Krrishna pulling a shorter delivery towards the deep mid-wicket area, leaving the fielding team stunned and the crowd erupting in cheers, as he secured his place among those who have etched their names in cricketing folklore with six sixes in an over.

His monumental innings didn’t stop there – Krrishna amassed a stellar 110 runs, playing a significant role in Andhra’s commanding total of 378. However, the match itself turned out to be a run-fest, as the Railways responded with a mammoth score of 865/9 declared, marking the highest team total ever witnessed in the CK Nayudu Trophy. The game concluded in a draw, but not before Krrishna had cemented his status as a rising star in the cricketing world.

Vamshhi Krrishna’s exceptional display of aggressive batting has once again proven that the modern era of cricket is all about power and showmanship. Spectators and enthusiasts of the game were treated to an exhibition of batting prowess that is typically reserved for the biggest stages of international cricket. Krrishna, with his swashbuckling style, has demonstrated that the future of cricket in India is in capable hands, and that records are meant to be made and then broken with the spirit of sportsmanship and an unyielding drive for excellence.
