Nobody would have thought that after a bowler took a hat-trick in the match, he would get hit for six sixes in the very next over. The same has happened to Sri Lankan spin bowler Akila Dhananjay. He scored a hat-trick in his second over in the first T20 match played against the West Indies today, while in the third over he had to take six consecutive sixes.
Spinner Akila scored a hat-trick off the second, third, and fourth balls of his second over. Akila dismissed Evin Lewis, Chris Gayle, and Nicholas Pooran respectively. Gail and Puran could not even open an account.
After this, when Akila came to the next over, West Indies captain Kieron Pollard was in front of him. Pollard hit six consecutive sixes in this over of Akila. Thus Pollard equaled Yuvraj's world record. In the match, Akila took three wickets for 62 runs in four overs.
