Watch: Iftikhar Ahmed hits six sixes in an over off Wahab Riaz | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: Pakistani batter Iftikhar Ahmed joined an exclusive club on Sunday as the right-hander hit six consecutive sixes in an over off pacer Wahab Riaz in an exhibition match organized by Pakistan Super League (PSL) at Nawab Akbar Bugti Stadium in Quetta.
Thrashing in the last over of the innings left Riaz’s hitherto impressive spell in tatters as he returned figures of 3 for 47 in four overs.

Iftikhar’s 94 is not eliminated, with 50 balls, enhanced blitzkrieg Quetta Gladiators at 184 for 5 against Babar Azam-led Peshawar Zalmi in the game. He was well supported by mid-range batsman Khushdil Shah (36 for 24) and opener Abdul Wahid Bangalzai (28 for 19).
Chasing the big target, Peshawar lost the match by a narrow three runs after managing to score 181. Babar scored 23 in the match.

A terrorist attack a few kilometers down the road from the stadium forced the match to be stopped for some time and the top players participating like Babar and Shahid Afridi were taken to the safety of the dressing rooms. Play was later resumed after the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) was given the green light by security officials.
Nine men have already hit their maximum highs in an over: Garry Sobers, Ravi Shastri, Herschelle Gibbs (the first in international cricket), Yuvraj Singh, Ross Whiteley, Hazratullah Zazai, Leo Carter, Kieron Pollard and Thisara Perera.
