Indian allrounder Ravindra Jadeja hit the headline for another record which doesn't occur often. The Indian all-rounder who has two triple hundreds with his name in domestic circut scored 36 runs in one over.

He hit six sixes in an over. Jadeja achieved this rare feat during a recent inter-district T20 tournament match between Jamnagar and Amreli at the Saurashtra Cricket Association stadium. Jadeja, who was representing Jamnagar district, went on to score a whirlwind 154 off just 69 deliveries as his side posted a mammoth 239/6 in 20 overs.

The bowler who got the unwanted treatment was Nilam Vamja.  

During his stunning knock, Jadeja hit 10 sixes and 15 fours. The all-rounder started his destruction from 10th over and it was in the 15th over of the match that he hit the six sixes. 

Chasing the target of 240 runs, the opposition team Amreli could only score 118 with the loss of 5 wickets. Vishal Vasoya scored 36 while Nilam Vamja made 32 runs. 

For Jamnagar, Mahendra Jethva was the pick of the bowlers as he took 3 wickets in 4 overs and gave away just 6 runs. Riding on Jadeja’s ton, Jamnagar won the match by 121 runs and secured 4 points.
