New Delhi: Since the introduction of T20 cricket, we have seen cricketers from across the world create some mind-blowing records.
Australian club cricketer Aled Carey achieved a rare feat, where he claimed six wickets off six balls during a Ballarat Cricket Association fourth-team fixture match in Victoria last Saturday.
Playing for Golden Point Cricket Club, Carey, who failed to pick a single wicket in first eight overs against East Ballarat, bowled a sensational ninth over, where he dismissed six batsmen.

The bowler first claimed a hat-trick off the first three balls – a catch at first slip, a caught behind by the wicketkeeper and a leg-before wicket.
While the bowling team celebrated it, nobody had a clue was was about to happen.
The 29-year-old clean bowled his last three victims off the next three balls of his ninth over to complete a double hat-trick as East Ballarat were bowled out for 40.
“There were only a handful of spectators watching but someone from the crowd sensed something special was happening and managed to record Aled’s fifth and sixth wickets,” John Ogilvie, secretary of Golden Point, told BBC Sport.
“We’ve got the ball in the safe and we will make a trophy to present to Aled at our awards night in April to celebrate his feat.
“Aled has been at Golden Point for many years and says the club is part of his family.”
