In women’s one day international cricket, a new record has been made for hitting the most number of sixes by Sophie Devine, a batting all-rounder from New Zealand. At Saturday on the County Ground in Tonton, the New Zealand Women’s Team has secured an easy victory of 8 wickets against Pakistan prying over Devine’s smashing batting. The tornado innings of 93 off 41 balls from Devine made the overall total of 145 runs from Pakistan look like a child’s play. The Kiwi girls successfully chased the total only in 15 overs.
In her way of playing the 93 runs innings, she hit 7 boundaries and 9 over boundaries. She even outperformed South Africa’s Lesley Lay who hit 7 sixes against India.
Though it’s not the first time for South Africa’s batting sensation. She hit 7 sixes in two more innings. DindraDotin, another batting sensation from West Indies, also has the record of hitting 7 sixes in an innings. Today Devine put every one of them in behind.
Aside from the world record for hitting most sixes, Devine also made the record for the fastest half century for her country. The magnificent 50 came up in just 27 deliveries. The old record of fastest half century was in 29 balls by Rachel Priest.
