West Indian power-hitter Andre Russell gave yet another demonstration of his batting skills, clobbering six sixes in a row in a game in The 6IXTY. Representing the Trinbago Knight Riders against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots, the dashing batter clobbered 72 runs off 24 balls in Basseterre on Saturday (August 27).

The 34-year-old struck eight sixes in his innings, apart from five fours. Six of his maximums came off consecutive deliveries. In the seventh over of the innings, Russell hammered the last four balls from Dominic Drakes for sixes.

He clubbed two more sixes off the first two deliveries in the next over bowled by Jon-Russ Jaggesar. There is no switching of ends after each over as per the rules of The 6IXTY.

The West Indian all-rounder hit another four before being dismissed in the same over. The right-handed batter ended his innings with a strike rate of exactly 300. Watch the video of Russellโ€™s blitz below:
