The trick came in the sixth game of a bizarre inning in the West Indies, thrown by off-spinner Akila Dananjaya, who had a hat trick in his previous game .
Pollard followed in the footsteps of Herschelle Gibbs from South Africa against the Netherlands at the 2007 World Cup and Yuvraj Singh from India, who also did the trick at the 2007 Twenty20 World Cup against England.
Pollard was eventually ran out for 38 out of 11 balls as the West Indies chased 132 to win at Coolidge Cricket Ground, and hit their target on the 14th when Jason Holder defeated his team’s 13th six.
« As When I got five sixes, I knew I had the bowler on my hind foot. He went around the wicket and it was difficult for him. I just said to myself, ‘Do it’. «
» What I told Akila , was to go to his wicket marry even if he is hit for six sixes. If he got you wrong, we could have got him out. Unfortunately it didn’t happen. «
Only eight men have beaten six sixes in an over in all forms of cricket, and his West Indian compatriot Garfield Sobers was the first to do so in an English county game in 1968. </ West Indies openers Evin Lewis and Lendl Simmons struck 52 of the first 20 balls as the two-time T20 World Cup winners looked on the right track.
After Lewis got three sixes out of three balls ahead of Mathews’ Having hit the opening, he was caught by Danushka Gunathilaka in the depths of Dananjaya for a whopping 28.
That brought 41-year-old Chris Gayle to his first international appearance in two years.
But he only lasted one Ball out when he was level against Dananjaya, who then completed his hat trick by letting Nicholas Pooran get caught by Niroshan Dickwella.
The West Indies were 52-3, which soon turned 62-4, as leg spinner Wanindu Hasaranga Simmons dismissed the opener 26 before Pollard started his demolition job.
Sri Lanka, which wanted to win a match for the first time in a year, achieved a below average result of 131-9.
The tourists were won by the 2012 and 2016 world champions asked to beat Pathum Nissanka, who made his debut in Sri Lanka with a top result with 39 balls out of 34, including four fours and one of his team’s three sixes.

The team entered the auction with the largest cash prize among eight teams – Rs 53.20 crore – and peeled Rs 22 crore for Richardson and Meredith.
When Pollard joined the exclusive group of batsmen who hit six sixes in one over with Herschelle Gibbs and Yuvraj Singh, Twitter ignored the feat.
Sri Lanka Cricket said it was « disheartening » that Vaas took the « sudden and irresponsible move on the eve of the team’s departure for personal cash ».
