Colin Munro reaches 100 sixes in T20I cricket

England and New Zealand have swelled their rivalry to another level after featuring in a fascinating T20I game which went right down to the wire before England won it in the super over. New Zealand batted first to get 146 runs in the 11 overs of the rain curtailed game, which was matched by England before the game went into the super over.

One of the major positives of the game for hosts New Zealand was the batting form of their opening batsman Colin Munro, who came back to form with a well-made 46. Partnering with Martin Guptill at the top of the order, Munro wreaked havoc on England to form a crucial 83-run opening partnership inside first 31 balls.

During his smashing innings, the 32-year old recorded 4 sixes to enter the club of players who have struck 100 sixes in the shortest format of the game. Other players to do it include Rohit Sharma, Martin Guptill and Chris Gayle. However, the day didn’t end well for the Durban won as New Zealand lost the five-game T20I series 3-2 despite being in a strong position of winning the final encounter.
