Ruhan Pretorius clubs 6 sixes in an over - 30/06/15

Ruhan PretoriusRUHAN PRETORIUS created Irish Senior Cup history on Sunday by clubbing 6 sixes in an over.

Pretorius scored an unbeaten 101 from just 49 balls - his second fifty coming in just 14 balls as his Waringstown beat 2013 winners Clontarf in a thrilling encounter.

Irish Under-23 player Conor D'Arcy was the unfortunate bowler, as Pretorius and and Greg Thompson (66*) shared an unbroken 6th wicket stand of 164 in 14 overs - 93 of which came off the last 24 deliveries of the innings as the NCU side finished on 316 for 5.

LCU side Clontarf were undaunted by the large target and for much of the chase were on course to overhaul it. Bill Coghlan top scored with 94 and skipper Eoghan Delany hit an unbeaten 85 as they fell an agonising six runs short. 

But, it was Pretorius who stole the show, joining an exclusive club, including the likes of Sir Garfield Soberts, Ravi Shastri, Hershelle Gibbs and Yuvraj Singh who have struck 6 sixes in an over.
