USA vs ENG: After Stuart Broad, this bowler conceded so many sixes in an over, history repeated after 2007 World Cup

In the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2024, once again that feat was seen, which was seen in the first edition. Team India's Yuvraj Singh created history by hitting 6 sixes against England's Stuart Broad. However, after that, let alone 6 sixes in an over, even 5 sixes were never hit in the World Cup. Although in 2016, Carlos Brathwaite of West Indies did hit 4 sixes in an over, he could not match Yuvraj Singh's record.

The world witnessed the feat of five sixes in one over on Sunday night once more. While Jos Buttler, the captain of England, did not hit six sixes in an over, he did hit five sixes in an over for just the second time in World Cup cricket history. In the over against Harmeet Singh of America, Jos Buttler struck five straight sixes. In his inning, Butler faced 38 balls and hit six fours and seven sixes. Chris Jordan of England scored a hat-trick in this game, leading his team to a decisive 10-wicket victory over the USA and a spot in the T20 World Cup semifinals.

England needed a big win in this match and the captain won the toss and decided to bowl first. The US team collapsed for just 115 runs. After this, both England openers achieved the target without losing a wicket and also confirmed the team's place in the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup 2024. In Group 2, South Africa qualified in first place with six points, while the England team remained in second place with four points.
