He has become the first player from USA to score a century in ODIs.
Jaskaran Malhotra hit 16 sixes and 4 fours in his innings. He surpassed AB de Villiers’ 162 for the highest ODI score by a player batting at No. Chandigarh-born right-handed batsman Jaskaran Malhotra hit six sixes in the final over of the innings after completing his maiden ODI century. USA posted a score of 271-9 in 50 overs, in reply the opposition was all out for 137. In this way USA won by 134 runs.
Gibbs and Yuvi did this feat
Former South African batsman Gibbs is the first player to hit six sixes in an over in international cricket. Gibbs achieved this feat during the 2007 ODI World Cup against the Netherlands. Six months later in 2007, former India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh equaled the record for hitting six sixes in an over against England’s Stuart Broad during the T20 World Cup. Earlier this year, Kieron Pollard of West Indies hit Sri Lanka’s Akila Dhananjaya for six sixes in T20Is.
