Cricketer Airee makes History by Smashing Six Sixes in an Over

April 13: Dipendra Singh Airee, Nepal's big-hitting finisher, entered the record books as the third man to hit six sixes in an over in an international T20 game.
According to Espn Cricinfo, Airee achieved the feat in the last over against Qatar in their ACC Men's Premier Cup match in Al Amerat on Saturday.
Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) in a social media post on X (formerly Twitter) also confirmed the feat.
Starting the over on 28 off 15 balls, with Nepal on 174 for 7, Airee smashed medium pacer Kamran Khan for sixes off each delivery to end on 64 from 21, and took Nepal to 210 for 7, Cricinfo wrote on its website.
“That put his name on a list which only had Yuvraj Singh (off Stuart Broad in Durban in the 2007 T20 World Cup) and Kieron Pollard (off Akila Dananjaya in Coolidge in 2021) so far. In ODI cricket, the feat has been achieved by Herschelle Gibbs and USA's Jaskaran Malhotra.”
Nepal defeated Qatar by 32 runs in the match. Qatar, chasing a target of 211 runs to win, could only gather 178 runs at the loss of nine wickets in 20 overs.     
Captain Muhammad Tanvir scored 63 runs in 33 balls with four fours and six sixes. Mohammad Ahnaf (23), Himanshu Rathore (22), Adnan Mirza (19) and Qamaran Khan (18) were the top contributors. The other batsmen of Qatar could not score significant runs. 
Nepali cricketers, Lalit Rajbanshi, Dipendra Singh Airee and Gulshan Jha, took two wickets each while Kushal Malla and Avinash Bohora took one wicket each. 
Earlier, Nepal opted to bat first after winning the toss and scored 210 runs for the loss of seven wickets in 20 overs.
