Ravindra Jadeja slammed 154 off just 69 deliveries

Two of Jadeja's sixes came over deep midwicket and deep extra cover each, while one each flew over the long-on and deep point boundaries, according to someone who saw the game at the SCA-B ground at Khandheri in Rajkot. Now, with the Sri Lanka limited-overs series ongoing, Jadeja - who has struck three first-class triple-centuries, the most by an Indian - stuck to the destructive pattern and struck six sixes in an over en route to a blistering century on the opening day of the Saurashtra Cricket Association (SCA) inter-district T20 tournament. Shastri had hit six sixes in a row against left-arm spinner Tilak Raj in a Ranji Trophy match against Baroda in 1984. The left-hander has joined an elite group of batsmen by smashing six sixes in an over. Yuvraj did it against England in 2007 World Twenty20 while Pakistan's Misbah joined others in a Hong Kong T20 Blitz this year.

Jadeja's 69-ball 154 was predominantly laced with a slew of hits to the fence and beyond. West Indies' legend Sir Garfield Sobers was the first, followed by Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh. Due to his efforts, Jamnagar was able to score big and in the end beat Amreli by a whopping margin of 121 runs.

Huddersfield end away drought in style with win at Watford
Elias Kachunga scored his first Premier League goal when he tapped in from close range after Watford had failed to clear a corner. The only blemishes for Huddersfield were injuries to Kachunga and defender Chris Loewe, who limped off before halftime.

However, Pollard and Clark achieved the landmark in lower-level matches. Jadeja hit six sixes in the 15th over with Neelam Vamja 6 balls. Opening the batting, Jadeja batted till the 19th over when he was run out. Hales feat came during the Natwest T20 Blast match between Nottinghamshire and Birmingham Bears where he notched up an unbeaten 86 and anchored his side to an eight-wicket win.

The all-rounder has been included in the squad but earlier skipper Virat Kohli had admitted that there's no guarantee that both Jadeja and his spin twin R Ashwin will play every game.
