It is not every day that a bowler gets hit for six sixes in an over, and makes a comeback by slamming century in just 26 balls. Pakistani cricketer Babar Azam did just that.

In a charity T10 match organised by the Shahid Afridi Foundation on Sunday, 24 December, Azam hit the record century. He was however, hit for six sixes in an over by former Pakistani cricket captain Shoaib Malik in the previous innings.

In the seventh over, Malik pulled a Yuvraj Singh, slamming Azam and helping his team reach a target of 201 in 10 overs.

Azam leading the retaliation attack for his team, tore into the opposition’s bowling attack, securing a 9-wicket win.

In the 2007 inaugural World T20 star Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh had hit six sixes in an over, off England’s Stuart Broad. Yuvraj entered the record books as the first batsman to score a perfect six in six in a T20 game.
