Yuvraj Singh is remembered again for the six sixes hit by Pollard . It was Yuvaraj who hit Six ,sixes in an over first and now it is Pollard in T20.

In hurried second innings of the first T20I between West Indies and Sri Lanka in Antigua, Kieron Pollard become the second player after Yuvraj Singh to score six sixes in an over in T20I cricket.

He meted out this treatment to Akila Dananjaya who had earlier picked up a hat-trick, as the hosts won the action-packed opening game of the series by four wickets.

Chasing the total, West Indies completed the run chase in just the 14th over. Lanka bowler Akila Dananjaya took a hat-trick in this very match by dismissing Evin Lewis, Chris Gayle and Nicholas Pooran.

But Pollard then smacked the same bowler to huge sixes at the end of power play.

Pollard said :A couple of things went through my mind before the sixth ball – before the last ball, I thought should I go for the six or take the 30 runs in the over, he went around the wicket and bowled it onto my pads, I told myself ‘Wait Polly, take a chance’. That’s how I have played my cricket all along, especially against the spinners,”.
