In the "idol" Chris Gayle, Hazratullah Zazai had the perfect audience for his six-in-one show for Kabul Zwanan against Balkh Legends in a clash of the Afghan Premier League in Sharjah.
the presence in the opposition or in the objective of 245, is irrelevant, Zazai was unleashed in the fourth section of the entrances, crushing each of the six deliveries of Abdullah Mazari, except for a wide exit from the park.
"It was a surreal moment for me to perform in front of my idol [Gayle]," Zazai said after the game, "I was trying to play my natural game and I did not think of making fun of anyone."
However, he outclassed many others, becoming the sixth player in the history of competitive cricket, and only the Third in T20s to hit six sixes in a final.The ones who achieved this feat before him are Sir Garry Sobers, Ravi Shastri, Herschelle Gibbs, Yuvraj Singh and Ross Whiteley.
In the process, Zazai also equaled the T20 record by fifty-five faster, incidentally also by Gayle e Yuvraj, when he arrived there in 12 balls, with his fifth consecutive six.
"It's a moment of pride for me," Zazai said. "It's a very nice moment for me that my name is now linked to so many important names in the game, that they really are legends of the game. I am grateful to Alight Almighty for helping me to score the ball of the twelve balls. " However, Zazai's 17-ball 62 was in vain, as he could not withstand the onslaught, Kabul lost by 21 runs, but the Zazai's innings were memorable, especially for the fact that he outperformed an 80th archetype of his idol in the first innings.The other significant record that broke in the night was for most of the sixes in a T20 match (37 in total), only one less than the record of more sixes in a match in any format.
