On most days, numbers don’t do justice in sports but on others, it is about nothing but the numbers. When you achieve certain figures in a game, you achieve greatness. The kind of greatness that lives on and turns into a legend.

SIR RAVINDRA JADEJA for a reason!
Ravindrasinh Anirudhsinh Jadeja was born in the city of NavagamGhed in the district of Jamnagar. At a time when his place in India’s limited-overs cricket team is in question, Jadeja has returned to his roots to smash six sixes in an over in the Saurashtra Cricket Association inter-district T20 tournament. His batting blitzkrieg lasted for 59 deliveries where he hammered a staggering 159, out of which 120 runs were scored by boundaries alone.

The 29-year-old has joined an elite club of cricketers who have knocked the ball out of the park six times consecutively in an over. The record is not only an insight into his natural ability to hit lofted shots but also his positive stroke play; both of which make him an exciting limited-overs batsman.

Sir Ravindra Jadeja hits 6 sixes in an hour & became the 3rd Indian to do so. #Sir— ﺭﺿﻮﺍﻥ (@PagalBachcha) 16 December 2017
The Indian Cricket Team management, like the rest of the world, are banking on their wrist-spinning arsenal in limited-overs cricket and finger-spinners like Jadeja are working hard to earn their spots back. A street-smart bowler and gun-fielder, it was always about getting big runs for him.
Six sixes in an over! #RavindraJadeja warms up for #SouthAfrica tour in style..— Abhinay AnanthU (@Abhi_Ananthu) 16 December 2017
The national team all-rounder has not quite hogged the limelight when in national duty, but the intimidating left-hander has a record 3 Triple Centuries in Ranji Trophy. @SirJadeja#TimesNow
Sending a message? ODI and T-20 discard Ravindra Jadeja hits six sixes in an over— Yash (@AficionadoYash) 15 December 2017
This innings could well be a watershed moment for him as a batsman in limited-overs, who still has a lot to offer to the national team. Back in 2012, at Rajkot, just days before his 24th birthday, he became the eighth batsman and first Indian to have scored three triple-centuries in first-class cricket.
He will surely be hoping for a lot more of his 'sword celebrations' in the white-ball cricket now.
