Iftikhar Ahmed continued his excellent form in T20 cricket by smashing six sixes off an over bowled by Wahab Riaz earlier today in a Pakistan Super League exhibition game. Playing for the Quetta Gladiators against Peshawar Zalmi, Ahmed smacked 36 runs in the 20th over of the innings.

Zalmi captain Babar Azam won the toss and opted to field first against Sarfaraz Ahmed's Quetta Gladiators. The Gladiators posted a 184-run total on the board in their 20 overs.

36 of those 184 runs came in the last over bowled by Wahab Riaz. Ahmed smashed him all around the park to add some valuable runs to the team's total. Ahmed ended the innings with 94 runs from 50 balls. Fans should note that he took 42 balls to complete his half-century.

A video of his six sixes has gone viral on Twitter. You can watch the clip right here:
