New Zealand’s player Finn Allen did an amazing job against Pakistani players. He did something really special during the third T20 International match on Wednesday in Dunedin. In a short time of 62 balls, he scored a high 137 runs. This makes him the top scorer for New Zealand in T20 Internationals, beating Brendon McCullum’s previous record of 123 runs. Finn Allen also tied the world record for hitting the most sixes in a T20 inning.
Before, Afghanistan’s Hazratullah Zazai held this record with 16 sixes. Finn Allen has now reached the same milestone. Hazratullah Zazai achieved this in February 2019 in a match against Ireland, where he scored 162 runs off 62 balls. Now, Finn Allen has scored 137 runs in a similar number of balls. He hit five fours and 16 sixes in his innings. Even though there’s a big difference in the quality of the teams (Ireland and Pakistan), people are really praising Finn Allen for his outstanding performance.
In T20 cricket, here are the players who hit the most sixes in one inning:
