The 22nd match of the ongoing edition of the Super Smash T20 has just witnessed a rare feat when Canterbury King’s batsman Leo Carter smashed six sixes in consecutive deliveries against Northern Knights at the Hagley Oval on Sunday.

The 16th over of the match bowled by Anton Devcich went for 36 runs as Canterbury sealed the victory with seven balls to spare.

Chasing the target of 220, Canterbury were in need of 64 runs in the last five overs. Captain Cole McConchie accompanied Leo Carter who was at that time batting on 11 off 12 deliveries. The following over provided absolute entertainment for the crowd as Carter launched a complete assault against Devcich.

While the first six flew over the backward square leg, the next couple cleared the deep mid-wicket region.

In the final delivery Anton Devcich came round the wicket only to hit for a six over deep square leg fielder.

Carter became the fourth player  to hit six sixes in an over in T20 matches and the seventh in total after after Gary Sobers, Ravi Shastri, Herschelle Gibbs, Yuvraj Singh, Ross Whitely, Hazratullah Zazai.
