We have seen sixes going flat, going just above the fielder standing on the boundary, going directly to the crowds or in the first tier stands. But, only a handful of times have we seen the ball going out of the park, quite literally and Dan Christian was the man who made that possible recently.
Hobart Hurricane were taking on Brisbane Heat at Brisbane’s home ground. New on the crease, Hurricane batsman Dan Christian thrashed a half-volley out of the stadium and produced a monstrous 117m six! The ball kept climbing altitude as soon as it left the bat of Christian and finally landed above the high roofs of the stadium. Brisbane Heats bowler Feldman bowled to Dan Christian as he cleared his front leg and heaved it over cow corner, the ball ended up on the roof. Call for a replacement ball, please!
Fans are enjoying the T20 contest as the match is a high scoring one. Sixes are getting smashed more frequently than boundaries as Brisbane Heat chase down a target of 196 runs from 120 balls.
Here is the video of the roof-climbing six –
