The 22-year-old achieved the feat in a Championship Second XI game against Yorkshire to join an illustrious list of names.

Spinner Gurham Randhawa was the bowler who suffered the punishment.

Former West Indies all-rounder Garfield Sobers was the first man to do it, in 1968, and Indian Ravi Shastri followed suit in 1985.

South Africa opener Herschelle Gibbs smashed six sixes in an over at the 2007 World Cup and Indian Yuvraj Singh did the same at the inaugural Twenty20 World Cup the same year.
