CK Nayudu’s six sends the cricket ball from one county to another 

Late Colonel Cottari Kanakaiya Nayudu (C.K.) captained India in their first ever Test against England at Lord’s in 1932. He played a total of 7 Tests for India and 207 first-class matches. He played his last first-class match at an age of 69. 

He scored a total of 11,825 runs at an average of 35.94 with 26 centuries in his first-class career, and also took 411 wickets with 12 five-wicket hauls and 2 ten-wicket hauls. In his first Test for India and as a captain, he suffered a hand injury during fielding, but came out to bat and scored a gritty 40 to take India to a respectable total. Impressive that is!

Once during the tour of England, at Edgbaston, he hit a six crossing the River Rea which was the boundary between Warwickshire Worcestershire. 

So clearly, he became the first batsman in the history of the game to smash the cricket ball from one county to another.
