Australia U-19 batsman hit six sixes in an over

Sydney teenager Ollie Davies smashes 6 sixes in an over during Under-19 match in Australia

Davies slammed a record-setting double century against Northern Territory, including a ideal six sixes from one over.

Davies, who has represented Australia at U-16 and U-19 levels, became the first cricketer to smash a double century in the history of this tournament.

After he lost the toss at Adelaide's Glandore Oval on Monday, everything else panned out sensationally for Davies who amassed 207 off just 115 deliveries as NSW motored to 4-406 from their 50 overs. His knock included 14 fours and a tournament-record of 17 sixes, six of which came in the 40th over.

Davies, who counts Test batsman Shaun Marsh as one of his mentors, plundered 36 runs in just one over from NT spinner Jack James.

After scoring his first 100 off 74 balls, he brought up his second 100 in just 39 balls. He made it extra special by knocking a scintillating double century as well.

"It was incredible to get out there and hit the ball so cleanly in the first game".

"After the first two sixes I had it in the back of my head I wanted to give it a crack and it paid off at the end", NSW Metro's captain Davies told cricket.com.au.

"I was just trying to target forward of square and cow corner".

While Sobers and Shastri achieved the feat in First Class cricket; Gibbs remains the only player to have hit six sixes in an over in ODIs during the 2007 World Cup, while Yuvraj hit Stuart Broad for six sixes in an over during the inaugural edition of ICC T20 World Cup in 2007.

As far as the global record is concerned, Rohit Sharma, AB de Villiers and Chris Gayle hold the record for highest sixes in an innings, who knocked 16 sixes.
